Thieving Librarian's Sentencing Postponed

Manchester librarian Norman Buckley, who's confessed to stealing more than 400 rare books and other items from the Manchester Central Library system, was supposed to be sentenced today. The BBC reports that the judge has postponed sentencing after "the court was told the police and library do not yet have full details of the total number of books stolen."

The new sentencing date is October 23.
