Sherri Papini’s Sentencing Delayed Until September

The sentencing of Sherri Papini has been delayed. In November of 2016 the mother of two vanished while jogging near her Mountain Gate home. More than 3 weeks later she reappeared in Yolo County. HJer wrists were bound, her nose was broken, she was covered in bruises, burns, rashes and chain marks. She claimed she had been abducted at gunpoint by two Hispanic women, but she actually had been staying with an ex-boyfriend in Costa Mesa and had harmed herself to support her story. In April she took a plea deal and admitted to lying to a federal officer and defrauding the state’s victim compensation board of $30,000. In a written statement Sapini said she was “ashamed” of her behavior and apologized to loved ones she hurt. A sentencing hearing had been set for July 11th, but at Papini’s request, that’s been continued to September 19th.
