HANCOCK COUNTY, W. Va.--


A Hancock County man accused of sexual abuse of a child appeared before Hancock County Judge Martin Gaughan on Thursday morning for a status hearing.


William C. Pipes Jr. was indicted in September on charges of sexual abuse by a custodian and sex abuse in the first degree.



The attorney for Pipes told the judge that they still needed additional time to sort out issues with discovery in the case.  Specifically they are waiting on school records to see who signed the alleged victim in and out of school around the time of the alleged crime.


Hancock County Prosecutor David Cross requested more time before the case goes to trial, as there are several cases outstanding in the county.


Judge Gaughan granted a continuation and a trial date was tentively set for May 7.  Pipes will have to appear in court before then for an update in mid-April.



In September, Pipes was given a $100,000 personal recognizance bond and was released after being processed.
