KENNEWICK — Trial has been set for Jan. 24 for former Prosser Mayor Linda Lusk who is accused of sexual contact with a 14-year-old boy.

The Tri-City Herald reported the trial had been set for Nov. 15. A Benton County Superior Court judge reset the date Wednesday at the request of her lawyer who wants more time to interview witnesses.

The 49-year-old Lusk is charged with child molestation. She’s accused of inviting a Prosser High School boy to her home in April for a sexual encounter.
