The 66-year-old California man was to report to prison on Monday. Instead, he has until July 9 to don stripes.
Clement pleaded guilty in September to defrauding 22 investors in his Edgefund Capital to tune of $4.9 million.

In addition to Ponzi scheme payments, Clement spent about $300,000 of the money he raised on personal expenses.
