Okla. Man's Trial On Child Sex Abuse Charge Delayed

DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) - The trial of a Marlow man accused of child sexual abuse and concealing stolen property has been rescheduled.

Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks told the Lawton Constitution the attorney for Charles Dyer has withdrawn from his case and his new lawyer has asked for more
time to prepare.

Hicks says his office doesn't oppose defense attorney Al Hoch's request to delay the trial until January. The proceeding was set to start earlier this week.

Dyer remains in custody after his bond was revoked Aug. 29.
He was arrested near Richmond, Texas, in August after he didn't show up for his initial trial date.
