FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) -- An Army general's sentencing for inappropriate relationships with subordinates has been pushed back by at least one more day.

A military judge adjourned the sentencing hearing for Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair until Thursday morning. Prosecutors and defense attorneys had delivered closing arguments Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors have asked the judge to dismiss Sinclair from the Army, which would likely wipe out his benefits. Sinclair has pleaded guilty to several charges including adultery -- which is a crime in the military.

He had been accused of sexual assault, but those charges were dropped as part of the plea deal.
