Etheredge's sentencing pushed back to April 2

WICHITA — Sentencing in the securities fraud conviction of Wild West World founder Thomas Etheredge has been postponed to 2 p.m. on April 2.

He had been scheduled to be sentenced Friday in the Sedgwick County District Court of Judge Ben Burgess.

Etheredge, 55, faces up to 14 years in prison. A jury found him guilty last month of seven counts of securities fraud after investors gave him money for the failed theme park.
