BATON ROUGE - A judge agreed to delay sentencing for the man accused in a hit-and-run incident that critically injured an LSU graduate student in 2010.

Marshall Hahn, 31, faces up to ten years in prison after pleading guilty in May to the incident that injured Mike Bitton, a member of the university cycling club.

Today defense attorneys asked for the delay while they worked out an issue involving Bitton's medical expenses.  He was put into a medically-induced coma because of his injuries.

Bitton, an avid cyclist, was thrown 75 feet into a ditch May 15, 2010 when Hahn's vehicle struck his bike on River Road near Brightside Lane.

Hahn left the scene and turned himself in the next day, according to Louisiana State Police investigators.
