NEW ORLEANS - The re-sentencing date has been pushed back to late July for a former New Orleans police officer.

Gregory McRae is serving a 17-year federal sentence imposed in 2010 on charges connected to the burning of Henry Glover's body. Glover had been shot by another officer days after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.

An appeals court overturned one of the four counts on which McRae was convicted and ordered re-sentencing.

McRae had been set for re-sentencing on July 7. However, an order Tuesday from U.S. District Judge Lance Africk said a new date was needed to accommodate attorneys' scheduling conflicts. The new sentencing date is July 29.
