New trial date set for man facing multiple sexual abuse charges

PRINCETON — A new trial date was set Friday in the case of a Mercer County man facing charges including sexual assault and possession of child pornography.

A mistrial was declared last week in the trial of John Spaulding, 41, of Montcalm. Spaulding was previously indicted on six counts of sexual assault the first degree, attempt to commit a felony, and 50 charges of possession of material depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

During a status hearing Friday before Circuit Court Judge William Sadler, a new trial date was set for March 31 at 9 a.m.

Sadler also said final pre-trial motions will be held on March 17 at 9:30 a.m.
