Former Hempstead Town Clerk Mark Bonilla's sentencing has been adjourned until Oct. 7, a spokesman for the Nassau County District Attorney's office told Patch Friday.

On July 25, Bonilla, of Bellmore, was found guilty of one count of official misconduct. Shortly after the verdict, he was removed from his post as Town Clerk.

Bonilla was accused in September 2012 of threatening to transfer an employee unless he gave Bonilla personal photographs of a female employee who had accused Bonilla of sexual harassment.

After waiving his right to a jury trial, the 50-year-old town clerk was convicted by Judge Sharon Gianelli of one count of official misconduct, a class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.
