Two years later, David Viveiros' case of alleged sexual abuse with a minor, including a sodomy charge, has yet to go to jury trial

A motion to continue the jury trial for David Viveiros was scheduled this morning in Courtroom 3. The moton to continue was granted again. Jury trial of May 22 was vacated.

A setting for future dates is scheduled for June 27 at 8:30 a.m.

It was continued to this morning from the last hearing. I was there to hear the ruling by Judge Dale Reinholtsen to grant the defense motion to continue. Since I was covering the Nicholas Leigl 995 motion hearing at the same time, I did not hear why the defense was requesting this continuance.

Why do defense continuances for David Viveiros, in custody, a 2015 case, with charges of sodomy, oral copulation and aggravated sexual assault of a minor keep being granted despite DA's objections?

David Viveiros, had a court hearing scheduled yesterday at 8:30 a.m. in Courtroom 5. Once again, the defense requested a continuance for the jury trial. The DA opposed that request.

Viveiros is charged with sex/sodomy, oral copulation/penetration and aggravated sexual assault of a minor.

Count 1 is sex/sodomy with a child under 10, Count 2 is oral copulation/penetration with a child under 10, Count 3 is sex/sodomy with a child under 10, Count 4 is sex/sodomy with a child under 10, Count 5 is sex/sodomy with a child under 10, Count 6 is sex/sodomy with a child under 10 and Count 7 is aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14 years.

No decision was made on this last continuance, yet. The hearing for the  motion was continued to May 10.

This is a 2015 case. The defendant is in custody. The defense has requested several continuances. Public Defender has been representing Viveiros. I have been the only one following this case.

Trial confirmation is set for May 10. Jury trial for May 22.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. I already checked on the computer before your comment and with court administration and the DA's office, again right now. She is not listed as being in court yet. I will check again at 1 p.m. Either this is a valid tip or you are the same person obsessed with the Marcia Kitchen case and never comment on a post related to that case.
