FANNIN COUNTY, TX -- 54-year-old John Karl Duncan will stand trial on February 10th of next year.

He faces 5 felony charges including aggravated sexual assault on a child and indecency with a child by sexual contact.

Thursday in court, Duncan's attorney filed a motion to change the venue of his trial to Grayson County because he doesn't feel he can get a fair trial in Fannin County.

Prosecutors say they doubt that motion will be granted.

If convicted Duncan faces 25 years to life in prison on each count.
