BRITT — A plea change hearing has been scheduled for a Britt man charged with 12 sexual abuse-related counts.
73-year-old Paul Dewitt was charged in August with six counts of third-degree sexual abuse and six counts of incest. He’s accused of sexually abusing a female victim six times between July and December of last year. Court documents state that Dewitt admitted to authorities to committing the sexual acts.
Dewitt had filed not guilty pleas to the charges in September, but online court records show a plea change hearing has been scheduled for October 29th in Hancock County District Court.
