(KNZA)--A former Doniphan County Sheriff's deputy convicted on five child-sex related charges will have to wait awhile longer to learn his fate.

The sentencing for 35-year-old Nathaniel Keller was postponed last week in Doniphan County District Court to December 13.

A Doniphan County jury in September found Keller guilty of criminal sodomy, three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and furnishing alcohol to a minor for illicit purposes.

He was acquitted on a charge of promoting obscenity to minors.

Keller was charged with sex crimes alleged to have occurred between May and December 2017 involving a girl who was 14 years old at the time.

He was arrested in June of 2021 after Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents served a search warrant on his home.
