TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A hearing for a former Oklahoma sheriff on two criminal charges stemming from his indictment last year by a grand jury was postponed until next month.

Presiding Judge Rebecca Nightingale ruled to extend the proceedings against indicted Tulsa Sheriff Stanley Glanz, who resigned Nov. 1 after he was indicted on two criminal counts. Leaving the courtroom Wednesday, Glanz did not respond to multiple questions from reporters.

Glanz is charged with two misdemeanors: failing to release an internal report questioning the field training of a reserve deputy who fatally shot an unarmed man and willfully violating the law in an unrelated incident involving a stipend he received for a vehicle.

The internal report was leaked after ex-volunteer deputy Robert Bates fatally shot Eric Harris last April.
