ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A sentencing hearing for a man who pleaded guilty to a sex charge continued Friday  after it was delayed by his suicide attempt earlier in the week.

Jordan Dan Wenhold arrived in Lehigh County court Friday morning strapped to a wheelchair and was sentenced to nine to 24 months in jail.

Wenhold took out a bottle of pills and swallowed them during a hearing on Tuesday -- and his mother then got into an argument with the family of the victim.

Officials say Wenhold was being sentenced for sexually assaulting a teenager.
