Sentencing for a Cloverdale man charged with sexual misconduct with a minor has been continued for a second time.
William E. Norlin, 53, was arrested Jan. 22 and charged with two counts of Class C felony child molesting, Class C felony sexual misconduct with a minor and Class D felonies child seduction and performing sexual conduct in the presence of a minor.
Norlin initially pled not guilty to all charges. On May 7, Norlin pled guilty to the sexual misconduct with a minor charge. A plea agreement that would dismiss all the other charges in exchange for that plea was taken under advisement by Putnam County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Headley, and sentencing was set for June 4.
On June 1, Norlin's court-appointed attorney James Recker requested a continuance of sentencing. Headley granted the request and reset sentencing for June 18.
At the request of both parties, Norlin's sentencing was continued again. A date has yet to be set.
Although Headley has taken the plea agreement in the case under advisement, he is not bound by it. Class C felonies are punishable by up to eight years in prison, while Class D felonies carry a maximum sentence of three years.
Norlin was arrested after Child Protective Services reported his alleged victim told a CPS representative that Norlin had been molesting her since she was 11 years old, court documents said.
Norlin was released from jail on Jan. 26 after posting a $25,000 cash bond.
