Alexis Man’s Sex Abuse Trial Continued To Next Year

The jury trial for an Alexis man charged in a Mercer County sex abuse case has been continued to next year. 55 year old Moses Anderson’s trial was set to begin next week, but his attorney asked for a continuance to January 22nd yesterday in Mercer County Circuit Court. Anderson is facing Class 1 and Class 2 felonies in connection with alleged incidents involving a ten year old girl in June of 2015. He originally entered an “Alford plea” to a lesser Class A misdemeanor charge in March of last year, but was allowed to withdraw that plea three months later.  Anderson remains free on $50,000 bond.
