Convicted pedophile ex-WPTV (West Palm Beach) weatherman Rob Lopicola was supposed to be sentenced Today.
But now his fate in prison has been postponed.
The sentencing was set for this morning but prosecutors and Lopicola’s public defender requested more time.
“The reason for the postponement is to give both parties more time to prepare for the hearing,” said Mike Edmondson, spokesman for Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg.
Lopicola’s facing 20 years in prison after he was convicted by a jury of lewd and lascivious conduct and computer pornography and exploitation in October. He was cleared of the more serious charge of lewd and lascivious battery.
The charges stemmed from his July 2012 arrest after two underage boys told police they met Lopicola online and had sex with him in several occasions.
In one instance in West Palm Beach, Lopicola was busted by the mother of one victim who’d come home early and found the formerly beloved weatherman cowering in the shower.
