Trial date reset for Resetarits brothers

A trial date has been reset for Anthony Resetarits, 21, and Joseph Resetarits, 19. In a hearing on Monday, Kenai Superior Court Judge Carl Bauman set a trial week for June 2 in Homer. The trial had been set for the week of April 7.

The brothers are charged with one count each of second-degree assault. In charging documents, Alaska State Troopers said the men sexually assaulted with an object a teenage boy at a September 2012 East End Road drinking party.

From 60 to 80 teenagers and adults were at the party, including members of Homer High School sports teams. Troopers seized cell phones from people who took photos of the assault. Bauman reset the date of the trial so the court could get clarification on how many cell phones were seized and needed to be searched for photos. 

The Resetarits brothers have been out on bail since
October 2012. Their next hearing is March 10 in Kenai.
