A convicted child molester will have to wait until the new year to find out how long he will spend in prison.

Joseph Marc Castro Jr. appeared before presiding Judge Alberto Lamorena in Superior Court today for sentencing.

However, the hearing was delayed after the court said it only received probation's report today.

Castro is now set to learn his fate on Jan. 11, 2023.

In July, a jury convicted him of sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl on multiple occasions.
