Powers Trial



A two-day jury trial has been scheduled in a Fountain City case involving alleged sexual assault of a 13-year-old boy. 
    
Buffalo County Circuit Judge James Duvall scheduled a jury trial to begin June 1st for 56-year-old Thaddeus A. Powers, a former Fountain City man accused of felony 2nd degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 16. 
  
Powers pleaded not guilty after a preliminary court hearing in September where a sheriff's department investigator testified about sexual abuse allegations raised by the boy.
    
Powers has sold his house in Fountain City and now lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, according to new address information filed in circuit court.  
    
A complaint filed against Powers claims the boy was molested at Powers residence in June. Powers was free on a $10,000 cash bond with orders to stay away from minors under 18. 
    
The case is scheduled to have another motion hearing on Feb. 23rd and a final pre-trial conference on May 3rd.
