HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - Jeremy King will have to wait until December to learn his prison sentence.

A jury found King guilty of drug conspiracy back in August.

Judge Michael Urbanski made the decision to wait, after saying that King was the "lowest man on the totem pole of the three people charged in this bath salts case."

King's attorney requested the case to be continued until Augustus Julius and Matthew Comer are sentenced.

Julius and Comer will be sentenced December 4 and King will be the final man to be sentenced that morning.

The US Attorney asked for a sentence of 10 to 12 years.

Judge Urbanski compared the criminal history of Comer and King and concluded that King has little criminal history and therefore wasn't a leader.

The US Attorney said a 10 year sentence is appropriate because he was selling drugs everyday regardless that he was not profiting from it.

Judge Urbanski said he revoked Julius' bond because it was wrong that he was out on the streets while King was in jail and that the best chance for justice is to sentence all three on the same day.
