ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The sentencing hearing for Nezar ''Mike'' Maad has been continued until May 23, his attorney said.
In February, the Anchorage businessman was convicted in U.S. District Court on five counts including bank fraud, wire fraud and lying to the government.
Maad, who faces 12 months to 18 months in federal prison, came under scrutiny after his shop, Frontier Printing Services, was damaged days after Sept. 11 and ''We hate Arabs'' was spray-painted on a wall.
During that investigation, authorities discovered evidence that Maad had defrauded banks and the government.
