Ehlert trial moved to JulyWritten by Donna De Jesus
Guam - Last week, the defense filed a motion to dismiss Ehlert's indictment of criminal sexual conduct.
According to defense attorney Jay Arriola, the motion was filed based on the attorney general's office failing to present exculpatory evidence to the grand jury. This is evidence that could exonerate Ehlert of guilt. A hearing on the motion has been scheduled for May 9th to give the AG's office time to either oppose the motion or file a superseding indictment. Due to this, Ehlert's jury selection and trial has now been moved to July 12 at 1 p.m.
Arriola adds that the motion to exclude evidence of prior bad acts will still be heard on April 12. Ehlert was accused of sexually assaulting three university students at an off-campus party in 2014.
