PHILADELPHIA — Sentencing has been postponed for three women who pleaded guilty to charges stemming from their work at a corrupt, grimy Philadelphia abortion clinic whose owner was convicted of killing babies born alive.A judge rescheduled the sentencing dates Wednesday for 43-year-old Lynda Williams, 53-year-old Sherry West and 47-year-old Tina Baldwin because the women still have unresolved federal drug charges.Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted this month of first-degree murder in three infant deaths, and involuntary manslaughter in the death of a patient who was given a fatal overdose of painkillers.West and Baldwin are now scheduled to be sentenced June 24. Williams is due in court July 1.Thirty-six-year-old Adrienne Moton, who pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and other charges, is going home after being jailed for 28 months.
