Former Derry official's lewdness trial is postponed
The trial had been scheduled for March 7 in the 10th Circuit Court in Derry but was changed by Judge Lucinda Sadler last month to a motion to dismiss hearing. At the hearing, witnesses can be called and it will be determined whether the case can go to trial, according to a court official.
Anderson, 50, has pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charges of allegedly inviting a DirectTV salesman into his house on July 11 while in the nude and acting inappropriately.
Rosenberg had argued previously that his client was in the privacy of his own home when the alleged inappropriate conduct occurred, and the salesman remained in the home.
After leaving, the salesman allegedly left behind a brochure for Anderson with his own phone number handwritten on it, Rosenberg said.
But after the company refused to supply the materials, Rosenberg then asked that the court subpoena the DirectTV information.
Anderson was placed on administrative leave on July 12. He was discharged without cause in late October and received a settlement of approximately $45,000, according to a signed separation agreement. He remains free on $2,000 personal recognizance.
