Have an update on the pastor accused of abusing girls?
Court proceedings take time, so it's very rare to have a conviction after only a few months, unless the accused pleads guilty. In this case, Richard Mick, 51, has pleaded not guilty. He was charged with two counts of rape for allegedly attacking a former parishioner more than a decade ago. A 26-year-old woman accused Mick of molesting her when she was 13, and 17-year-old woman came forward with similar allegations, saying she was assaulted when she was a small child. I talked to courts reporter Jessica Cuffman to get the latest information on the case. She said a pretrial hearing is scheduled for Oct. 29. She'll keep following the story and will have more information in the Register as it continues.
