LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — UPDATE: A hearing for the civil case against millionaire Scott Gragson's deadly DUI crash has been delayed. Four parties, including the estate of the woman who died, are suing Gragson, saying he was drinking heavily before getting behind the wheel of a car.

Attorney's for the victims say, because of the guilty plea they would like to push the case back for three weeks. They have spoken to the defense team who agreed to the decision.

Gragon's sentencing in the criminal trial is scheduled for June 12.

Survivors of a deadly DUI crash in Las Vegas last year are searching for justice following a guilty plea from the driver.

Scott Gragson, 53, pled guilty to a felony charge of driving under the influence resulting in death and guilty to driving under the influence resulting in bodily harm on Thursday. He had previously pled not guilty and tried to get the case thrown out over alleged missteps by police.

As 13 Action News Reporter Sean DeLancey reports, Gragon's criminal trial could soon come to a close with sentencing scheduled for June 12, but the civil suit from the four victims in the crash is still very much in motion.

Gragson's lawyers appeared in a Las Vegas courtroom on Tuesday morning and asked for more time. They will be back in court on March 27.
