NPC commissioner’s sexual assault trial delayed again

Mike Grow

The sexual assault trial of Nez Perce County Commissioner Mike Grow has been delayed again in Valley County.

The trial was most recently scheduled to begin Monday in Cascade, but is now set for Dec. 10. However, another trial is scheduled for the same day at the courthouse. The District Court judges assigned to each case will confer to decide if there is a conflict, and if so, which trial will be rescheduled.

The 50-year-old Grow is charged with a felony count of forcible sexual penetration with a foreign object in an incident with a woman in April 2011 at a residence near Donnelly.

Grow has pleaded not guilty.
