Trial Delayed in Sexual Assault Case Against Port Bus Driver
Randy R. Mayer faces four felony counts of sexual assault of a child under the age of 13. The trial was set to start this week, but will now be held on April 25.
The trial — related to four felony counts involving three children — will instead begin at 8:30 a.m. April 25; a status conference is also set before the trial, at 8:30 a.m. April 18.
Mayer, 225 S. Madison Ave., is charged with four felony counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 13, and faces up to 240 years in prison.
Mayer was initially charged on Dec. 7 with three felony counts involving two boys; the fourth charge came about a week later when another boy came forward. Mayer entered a 'not guilty' plea on Jan. 3.
Mayer had initially posted a $2,500 bond in connection with the first three charges, but remains in custody after a $10,000 cash bond was set in connection with his fourth felony charge.
The first three charges involved two boys, 9 and 10 years old, which took place between Oct. 1-13, 2011. The Port Washington Police Department interviewed 37 students about the allegations, said former Police Chief Richard Thomas. Details from the criminal complaint describe the allegations. The fourth charge, with allegations similar to the other cases, involved a 6-year-old boy.
