Aaron Fisher has a trial date.
On April 10, the southern Missourian man, accused of sexually assaulting his 5-month-old daughter, will face a jury of his peers.
The only problem? Fisher’s first charges related to the incident (though not the ones he faces now) were brought in 2009.
That’s over seven years ago.
Fisher’s case has lasted for so long that he had to get a new public defender — in 2014, his previous one retired.
