(LAS VEGAS, KXNT, A.P.)  A 56-year-old former storefront church pastor’s court appearance Monday was delayed for two weeks, as his attorney indicated the pastor will plead guilty to child sex charges that could land him multiple life sentences.

Ex-United Faith Church leader Otis Holland was arrested in Henderson four years ago, but skipped town. He was the focus of an “America’s Most Wanted” episode before he was apprehended in Mexico a year ago. One of his under-aged victims was 7 years old.

A special prosecutor, attorney Robert Langford, is handling Holland’s defense because Holland was represented earlier by now- District Attorney Steve Wolfson. Langford told KXNT Monday that the court appearance was postponed until April 8th.
