Sentencing was delayed Friday for Lloyd Jones, a former Chicago Public Schools teacher and church youth leader who pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Jones had taught at Kennedy High School in Chicago's Garfield Ridge community since November 1992.

Judge Carla Alessio-Goode said she needed the defense to show her a sexual offender report by someone certified by the state's sex offender management board before she could sentence Jones.

Jones, 43, of Naperville, has been out of the Will County jail, on $300,000 bail. He was charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a minor in Will County last August, after he had been charged a couple weeks before with criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse in DuPage County.

The DuPage County case involved a 14-year-old boy. Jones pleaded innocent in that case on Sept. 7, according to Laura Pollostrini, spokeswoman for the DuPage County state's attorney.
