The sentencing of former Lake Worth attorney Timothy McCabe, who pleaded guilty in October to five felony counts of fraud, has been pushed back to March 13 following a request by McCabe’s attorney, Robert Gershman.
The sentencing was scheduled to take place Feb. 21.
Gershman asked the court on Monday to delay the date because he needed more time to review a CD given to him by federal prosecutors on Jan. 23 that contains the monetary losses suffered by McCabe’s victims.
Federal prosecutors agreed to the delay, which was approved Tuesday.
McCabe admitted in a plea agreement to stealing client money to pay for expenses at his law firm, title company, a travel agency and for his kickboxing company, Ringstar. He also admitted to defrauding clients in a mortgage rescue scam and operating a Ponzi scheme.
McCabe ran away in April as his schemes unraveled. It’s estimated more than $7 million in client money was lost because of the fraud. He turned himself into the FBI in June.
Gershman said in addition to needing time to review the CD, he also has upcoming personal conflicts including trips to see his children and to celebrate his “silver anniversary” with his wife.
