The former Trump administration official agreed to cooperate with Mueller’s probe as part of his plea deal, and his sentencing in the case has been delayed. 

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan on Tuesday delayed Flynn’s sentencing again, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Sullivan had called the hearing to determine why the probation office should prepare a pre-sentence report but not schedule a sentencing date at the same time, as is common practice. Mueller’s office and Flynn’s attorneys had requested the report.

Flynn’s legal team agreed Tuesday to delay preparing the report, which is used to determine the length of a sentence.

"General Flynn is eager to proceed with sentencing when that is possible," Flynn’s attorney, Robert Kelner, said, according to the Times. He added that Flynn wants to "bring an end to this chapter of his life."
