RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Reno lawyer for a retired IRS agent who pleaded guilty to a prostitution-related charge says he needs more
time to prepare for sentencing of the man who once investigated brothels in Nevada and wanted to open one himself.

U.S. District Judge Howard McKibben agreed to postpone the sentencing scheduled Tuesday until March 7 for Kemp Shiffer.

The 58-year-old Shiffer plead guilty in November to transporting a California woman across state lines to commit prostitution.

Shiffer once led the IRS investigation that shut down the Mustang Ranch and caused brothel owner Joe Conforte to flee to Brazil in the 1990s. He later formed a partnership with his lawyer David Houston to open a brothel west of Fallon but Churchill County denied the permit in 2006 for the proposed Petticoat Junction.
