Trial date set for former IID director accused of child abuse

Posted:

EL CENTRO, CA - A trial date for the former Imperial Irrigation District Director accused of whipping his step son has been set.

Anthony Sanchez will stand trial on December 4, 2012.

Sanchez was not present during a court hearing this morning but an Imperial County Court judge set the date.

Sanchez's neighbor video recorded him earlier this year allegedly whipping his stepson with a belt during a game of backyard catch.

Soon after he was arrested and charged with child abuse, he quit his post with IID.

Sanchez has pleaded not guilty.
