A lawyer has confirmed that former prisoner of war Jessica Lynch has postponed her June wedding to Army Sergeant Ruben Contreras of Colorado Springs.

Lawyer Stephen Goodwin says the two still are engaged -- they just decided June wasn't the right time.

Goodwin says Lynch has been unable to focus on planning a wedding because of her busy schedule and continued therapy for injuries she received last year when her Army convoy was attacked in Iraq.

The 20-year-old Palestine, West Virginia resident suffered broken bones and other injuries when the 507th Maintenance Company was attacked in southern Iraq on March 23rd. She was rescued April first.
