LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas court hearing was delayed for a 55-year-old former pastor accused of sexually assaulting young girls in his congregation, pending a judge’s decision whether the Clark County district attorney’s office can prosecute the case.
As a defense lawyer, Steve Wolfson represented Otis Holland. That was before Wolfson was sworn in as district attorney in February.
Holland made a brief videoconference appearance Monday before a Las Vegas judge who postponed arraignment pending a Henderson judge’s decision on the procedural question. That’s expected in July.
The former United Faith Church pastor faces multiple felony charges of sex assault with a minor that could put him in prison for the rest of his life.
He remains jailed in Las Vegas following his arrest in January in Tijuana, Mexico.
