JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- A former instructor at the Juneau Boys and Girls Club who is accused of possessing child porn failed to make an appearance in court on Thursday, when he was expected to plead guilty.
The attorney for Jeffrey Malley told the judge he thought the date had been changed. The Juneau Empire reports that Malley's attorney, Louis Menendez, arrived out of breath and more than 10 minutes late, saying he thought the date had been changed.
The court has already allowed three previous delays.
Malley was indicted on six counts of possessing child pornography last fall after police found hundreds of images and videos.
He had allegedly stored most of the images on a Boys and Girls Club hard drive that police say he stole. He was fired within days of his arrest.
In answering to Juneau Superior Court Judge Patricia Collins, Menendez said Malley was in his office nearby. Later, he revised his story to say his client was at home.
Menendez also said he was not ready to proceed and asked Collins to move the date. Menendez said he would have asked for a continuance but had forgotten to file the paperwork.
Collins reset the change of plea hearing for Tuesday.
