SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - The sentencing for a former South Bend Police officer accused in a child seduction case has been pushed back.

Timothy Barber, 37, of Elkhart pled guilty last month to a charge of child seduction stemming from an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old girl.

Court documents say Barber had sexual relations with the victim and repeatedly showed up to her job and exposed himself.

Barber entered a guilty plea as part of a plea agreement that caps any executed sentence at four years, and the remaining charges will be dismissed at sentencing, which is now scheduled for Sept. 9.
