Hip hop artist Scribe has appeared in the Christchurch District Court this afternoon, but the judge has delayed sentencing him on a drugs charge.
Defence Lawyer Elizabeth Bulger, told the court her 39-year-old client, whose real name is Malo Luafutu, was facing another charge over a matter in Auckland of a "domestic nature".
Other details from today's brief appearance have been suppressed.
Luafutu was found guilty of possession of the Class A drug methamphetamine in March. Other charges he faced were dismissed at trial.
Sentencing has now been adjourned until the 25th of September.
