BEAVER CITY, Neb. (AP) – A 56-year-old south-central Nebraska man facing 15 charges involving child sexual abuse wants to have his trial moved out of Furnas County.
KRVN reports William Quinn, of Oxford, has filed a motion arguing that he can’t get a fair trial in Furnas County because of excessive prejudicial media coverage. The charges stem from alleged incidents involving a minor female from June 2019 through January 2020.
The charges include five counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child and two counts of human sex trafficking involving a minor. A hearing on the change of venue motion is scheduled for April 12.
