The sentencing date for a man who pleaded guilty in a child sex trafficking case has been rescheduled.

Sentencing for Jemery Atral Hodges is now set for September 30.

Authorities say Hodges and Marco Laquin Rogers made a video of themselves having sex with a young female child in a Jackson hotel in May 2012.

They were charged with one count each of child sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion and one count each of selling or buying of children.

Hodges pleaded guilty June 20. He faces up to life in prison.

Rogers has pleaded not guilty. His trial is set for September 9.

Court records say both men are from Mississippi, but Rogers had been living in Atlanta and Hodges in Cambridge, Mass.
