WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Hubbard’s former mayor Richard Keenan appeared in court Monday for a pretrial on sexual assault charges.
Keenan faces eight counts of gross sexual imposition, eight counts of rape and four counts of attempted rape. Bond was continued at $75,000.
A pretrial was set for 8:30 a.m. December 19, and trial is scheduled at 11 a.m. April 24.
Keenan previously pleaded not guilty to the charges, and a judge ordered that he have no contact with children. He is accused of molesting a four year old, beginning in September of 2013.
