MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Milwaukee County judge has postponed the sentencing of a former Scott Walker aide convicted of two misdemeanors.

The prosecutor and defense attorney had submitted a joint recommendation that Darlene Wink's sentencing be postponed. Judge Daniel Konkol granted the request Tuesday. Her hearing is now set for July 17.

Wink was an aide to Gov. Walker when he was the Milwaukee County executive. She pleaded guilty in February to working on Walker's gubernatorial campaign on county time.

Prosecutors already agreed not to recommend prison time in exchange for Wink's cooperation in other related investigations. Prosecutor Bruce Landgraf says he wanted her sentencing delayed because those other investigations were still going on.

Defense attorney Peter Wolff says Wink would like her case resolved, but she also wants to cooperate with prosecutors.
