A federal judge in Kansas has postponed sentencing for a Framingham woman, who admitted harboring workers in the country illegally as part of a human trafficking operation in Asian massage parlors in Wichita.

The sentencing for Xiuqing Tian of Framingham will be rescheduled.

Tian has agreed to testify against her former employers, Gary Kidgell of Waltham and his wife Yan Zhang of Wichita. But their trial was put on hold when Zhang's lawyer requested an evaluation to determine if she's competent to be tried.

Tian admitted in her plea deal she came to Wichita work for Kidgell and Zhang. She admitted the couple encouraged her to perform sexual acts for patrons of two massage parlors where she worked.
