Trial Delayed For Former N. Idaho Teacher Charged With Possessing Child Porn

Posted: Updated:
LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - The trial for a former agricultural education instructor at a northern Idaho high school charged with 11 counts of possessing child pornography has been delayed.
    
A 2nd District Court judge granted a motion by 28-year-old Tyler D. Mink's defense attorney to postpone the trial until March 17.
    
Judge Jeff M. Brudie says Lewiston police in an oversight failed to earlier turn over evidence to the county prosecutor and as a result it hadn't been reviewed by Mink's attorney, Scott Chapman.
    
Brudie also accepted Mink's request to waive his right to a jury trial.
    
That means the evidence will be viewed by Brudie and attorneys, and Brudie will deliver a verdict.
    
Mink resigned from Culdesac High School in January 2013.
