Still no sentence for Donald Grecco.

The former Niagara priest and admitted child molester's sentencing has been adjourned until November 30th.

Grecco has plead guilty to three counts of gross indecency after sexually assaulting three altar boys in the 1970s and 80s.

The sentencing process got started in a Hamilton court room Friday.

Grecco's lawyer, Brian Donnelly presented what he calls mitigating circumstances to be considered in Justice Hawk's decision.

The Crown still has to make it's own submission, a process expected to take four hours.

Grecco's sentencing has already been delayed twice because of health problems.

Grecco has been named in a $3 million civil suit launched by one of his victims, Mike Blum.

The St. Catharines Diocese and former Bishop James Wingle are also named in the case.
