A MAN was told by a judge yesterday that he will now stand trial in April 2017 concerning an incident of alleged sexual assault of a woman in 2013.

Otto Moss, 30, reappeared before Senior Justice Stephen Isaacs two days after learning that the complainant in his attempted rape case was not present for Monday’s expected start of trial due to a medical emergency.

A new trial date was fixed for April 10, 2017. A status hearing to ensure the matter is still to proceed was fixed for March 15, 2017.

Moss had pleaded not guilty to the charge of attempted rape when formally arraigned in the Supreme Court on March 21, 2014.

He remains on bail and is represented by attorney Ian Cargill.

In a separate matter, 26-year-old Kevie Cambridge appeared before Senior Justice Isaacs for a status update on his sexual assault case scheduled for November.

He awaits trial on rape and burglary charges stemming from an early morning home invasion and attack of a woman on Harbour Island on June 11, 2013.

Cambridge denies the allegations and returns to the Supreme Court on July 13 for another status hearing.
