Former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banker Tim Leissner’s sentencing for his role in the 1MDB corruption scandal was delayed until next year.

Leissner, who pleaded guilty to charges in 2018 and testified against his former colleague Roger Ng, was originally scheduled for sentencing today, but US District Judge Margo Brodie in Brooklyn, New York, postponed the hearing to Feb. 15 without explanation.
