There’s yet another delay in the trial of western Iowa man charged in a federal child pornography case. For the seventh time in less than a year, a judge has granted a continuance in the federal child pornography trial of 37-year old Brian Patrick Street of Griswold.
Street faces multiple charges, including sexual exploitation of a child, possession of child pornography and coercion of a minor female to cross state lines with the intent to engage in sexual acts.
The charges against him stem from photographs discovered in a safe at Street’s burned-out home, following a fire on March 31st, 2005. Street’s stepdaughter said she set the fire to try and kill Street because Street was molesting her.
In March, Federal District Court Judge Ronald Longstaff granted a request for a change of venue in the case. Street’s trial was to have begun yesterday (Monday), but late last week, the judge agreed to extend the trial date one more month. It will now be held nine-a.m. June 12th, at the Federal Courthouse in Davenport.
