KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Prosecutors have announced plans to retry a Kansas priest who was suspended from the ministry after he was accused of inappropriately touching a young girl on two occasions.
Wyandotte County District Attorneys Office spokesman Jonathan Carter told The Kansas City Star on Wednesday that the Rev. Scott Kallals new trial will likely be held in May. The 37-year-old faces two felony counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. He was accused of inappropriately touching a 10-year-old girl in 2015 at a Kansas City, Kansas, church gymnasium and again at a graduation party in Bonner Springs.
His original trial ended in mistrial in September after the jury couldnt agree on a verdict.
