Attorney Change Delays Mercer County Sex Assault Case

A new attorney has been substituted in a Mercer County man’s criminal sexual assault case. The order was entered Monday morning in Mercer County Circuit Court for 51-year-old Robert Breshears Jr. of Alexis. He will be back in court on Nov. 8 and is now being represented by Scott McClintock.
Breshears faces two Class 1 felonies in connection with alleged incidents involving a female between the ages of 13 and 18. He was arrested on a warrant in September of 2020 and posted 10-percent of his $250,000 bond.
