Former Culdesac teacher charged with child porn gets jury trial date moved

Former Culdesac teacher charged with child porn gets jury trial date moved
LEWISTON, ID - The jury trial for a former Culdesac school district teacher, charged with eleven counts of possession of child pornography, was moved to a later date.

The trial was originally scheduled for September but is now set for November. At the motion hearing Wednesday the defense asked that evidence of any opinions be excluded, as well as evidence of-quote-"prior bad acts." Both the prosecution and the defense were in agreement that they need more time to look at the recently filed motion that also included a request to suppress evidence.

"With the issues that Mr.Chapman has raised now, it's likely that I'm going to have to reschedule that trial for a later date," said Nez Perce County Judge Jeff Brudie.

Under the recommendation of his attorney, Mink waived his right to a speedy trial. The final pre-trial conference is set for November 6th.
