'Big Brother 9' champ's drug sentencing is delayed

By The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Sentencing on federal drug and tax charges has been delayed for the winner of the CBS reality show “Big Brother 9.”

Adam Jasinski had been scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday afternoon. The hearing is reset for Friday because his attorney is ill.

Jasinski of Delray Beach, Fla., was arrested outside Boston in October 2009 and charged with attempting to sell 2,000 pills of oxycodone, the main active ingredient in OxyContin and other painkillers. He pleaded guilty in October to possession with attempt to distribute oxycodone and failure to file a tax return for 2008, the year he won the TV show’s $500,000 prize.

Jasinski faces a maximum 14 years on the drug charge and one year on the tax charge.
