Sheriff Craig Harris required more information regarding Wilson’s proposed ”living situation” with his cousin once he gained his liberty.

He deferred sentence until July 21 for a restriction of liberty order assessment to be carried out and stated Wilson will continue to be remanded in custody until that date due to his past record of non-appearances.
