Trial for man accused of infant abuse delayed
The trial for an Arizona man charged with sexually and physically abusing an infant has been delayed until September.
A pre-trial hearing for Dan Anderson Pruett originally scheduled for May 20 has been re-scheduled for Sept. 2. His trial will begin on Sept. 24. The state’s attorney’s office asked for more time to gather materials for the prosecution, according to court documents.
Pruett, 44, is accused of sexually assaulting and seriously injuring a 5-month-old girl in Dickinson. He has pleaded not guilty to gross sexual imposition and aggravated assault for charges stemming from an incident on the morning of Nov. 21.
