MISSOULA, Mont. -

A man who pleaded guilty for his involvement in a violent drug sting last fall is still waiting to be sentenced.

An undercover officer was shot in that sting last November. 

Police arrested four people including Justin Holdstheenemy. He's been in jail since December.  He pleaded guilty to his role in the crime, but hasn't been sentenced.

His attorneys and county prosecutors can't agree on restitution -- money that would likely cover costs for the injured police officer.

Missoula County District Court Judge Karen Townsend pushed the sentencing hearing to next week, to give attorneys more time to work out the restitution.

Three others arrested in connection with the case are scheduled to set trial dates in the next three months.
