Trial pushed back for Hugo man charged with child molestation

By  | 

HUGO, OK -- The trial for a Hugo man accused of child molestation scheduled for today, has been pushed back.

The choctaw county court clerk tells us the trial for 53-year old Curtis Martin was originally set to begin today, but was pushed back because he hired a new attorney.

Martin was arrested last July on two counts of lewd molestation. Authorities believe Martin molested two children at his home in 2011. Investigators say they were able to locate several more victims dating back to 1980.

A new trial date has not been set. He's due back in court for a conference March 4th.
