The sentencing for a former Danville Cub Scout leader who pleaded guilty to a federal charge of possession of child pornography has been postponed until next week.
Michael Vawter, 41, was originally scheduled to be sentenced Friday but will now be sentenced on Feb. 25. He could face up to 10 years in prison.
Vawter was arrested March 17, following a joint investigation by San Ramon police, the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He was arrested while working at CCI Financial & Insurance Services in San Ramon, where he was an executive vice president.
Investigators said they found 187 child pornography videos in his possession that appeared to have been downloaded from the internet.
"There were (pornographic photos of children) there and there were some on the computer at his home," San Ramon Lt. Dan Pratt said.
He also led a Cub Scout den, pack 802, in Danville.
According to the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council of the Boy Scouts of America, which oversees the Danville group, they met with den member parents and said there they told parents there were no images of Cub Scouts found on the computers.
Vawter's scout membership has been revoked.
