It does seem like an excessive amount of time to wait and be sentenced. His attorney, should atleast be contacting him and advising him of the basis for the delay. The court should have set a date for sentencing and if the original date was canceled or changed as a result of the issue with the PSI, a new date should have been reset. If not, his attorney should file a motion to set a sentencing date, so there could be some closure. You can try and reach out to the probation officer and see if they would provide a copy but they are under no obligation to release this to a family member. It would be something he or is attorney would be entitled to. If the attorney is not responding, contact his office this morning and ask to set up an appointment with him, in his officer, to see what is going on
