Trial delayed again for Iowa doctor

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A trial has been delayed again for a Council Bluffs doctor charged with sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl.

The Daily Nonpareil says (http://bit.ly/1dsIesI ) lead prosecutor Denise Timmins had asked for a continuance because of a scheduling conflict with the Jan. 14 trial date for Dr. Dennis Jones. The original trial date was Aug. 13. The new trial date is May 6.

Jones is accused of inappropriately touching the girl outside of his pediatrics practice. Jones’ attorney Mike Winter has said Jones is not guilty.

Court documents say investigators have found child pornography on at least one computer and several more digital devices owned by Jones.
