THE sentencing of double rapist Oscar Ingraham has been delayed for another week as court ordered psychiatric reports were not ready yesterday.

Justice Carolita Bethell yesterday advised the court that the report was near completion, but officials had not finished typing the document so that the doctor could sign it.

Ingraham is expected to be sentenced for the separate home invasion and sexual assaults of two women. The first attack took place on February 28, 2012, and the second happened between 11pm on May 29 and 5am on May 30, 2012.

Ingraham, according to evidence presented in the trial concerning the first incident, broke into the home of two foreigners, and robbed both of them of cash, cell phones, travel documents and government issued identification and work permits, valued at $3,325.

In the trial concerning the second incident, evidence revealed that he broke into a woman’s western New Providence home and robbed her of $165 cash and a $200 Nokia cell phone before sexually assaulting her with a gun to her head, despite her pleas for mercy.

The second incident had occurred during an island-wide power outage.

The sentencing was adjourned to August 8.
