The sentencing of Adam Hester, who allegedly sexually assaulted a University student in East Quad Residence Hall, was scheduled for Monday but has been adjourned for a week after Hester’s attorney, Byron Pitts, went to the wrong courthouse.
Hester, a 25-year-old Canton, Mich. resident, had already pleaded no contest to multiple charges, including assault, resisting a police officer and two counts of aggravated indecent exposure and fourth-degree criminal sexual misconduct.
The prosecuting attorney, Robyn Liddell, said she had been in contact with Hester’s attorney, who told her that he had mistakenly gone to a court in Port Huron, Mich. and would not be able to make it to the court in Ann Arbor.
Upon hearing this, the judge, Melinda Morris, adjourned the sentencing for one week, and the sentencing will now be heard on July 30.
Pitts was unavailable for comment.
