Another Delay in US Porn Case for German Strip Illusionist

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Trial has been rescheduled again in Las Vegas for an illusionist performer from Germany who faces decades in prison and up to $1 million in fines on federal child pornography charges.

Court records show that Jan Rouven Fuechtener’s trial has been rescheduled for a third time, to Oct. 17.

Proceedings had been due to begin this week in U.S. District Court.

The 39-year-old German citizen has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

He headlined on the Las Vegas Strip as Jan Rouven. His show closed following his arrest March 16, and he remains in federal custody.

Prosecutors allege that a computer user named “Lars45” collected more than 3,500 videos and images on computers at Fuechtener’s home. They say some depict sex acts with kindergarten-age children.
