CHARLESTON, South Carolina — The sentencing for a Florida developer who pleaded guilty to conspiring to sell property to South Carolina State University officials for kickbacks has been postponed.

Richard Zahn, who pleaded guilty in February 2013, was to have been sentenced Friday in Charleston. Court records show the hearing has been postponed and no new date has been set.

Prosecutors said Zahn wanted to sell a 120-acre tract of land known as the Sportsman Retreat to South Carolina State. In return for helping with the sale, he promised former university board chairman Jonathan Pinson a new Porsche.

Zahn testified for the government at Pinson's trial in Columbia last year in which Pinson was convicted on 29 counts including racketeering, kickbacks and money laundering.
