Sierra Foster will have to wait to learn how long she will spend in prison.

Court officials say a judge postponed her sentencing until January because she just had a child.

Thursday WYMT learned a Harlan County mother pleaded guilty late last year to a charge of reckless homicide.

Sentencing for Sierra Foster was rescheduled Thursday until April 18.
