LAS VEGAS (AP) - An attorney for boxer Carlos Molina has told a judge in Las Vegas that attorneys hope to get a Wisconsin warrant withdrawn and then get immigration proceedings resolved so Molina can be freed from jail.

Molina is jailed in Las Vegas following his arrest March 4 on a January 2007 warrant issued in Wisconsin accusing him of failing to register as a sex offender. The judge on Tuesday scheduled another status check Thursday about Molina's case.

Molina missed a March 8 fight to defend his IBF light middleweight title against Jermall Charlo in Las Vegas. The 30-year-old Molina was born in Mexico, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in California say he was deported in 2006.

ICE has said that if he's freed from jail, he'll face additional immigration proceedings.
