Jury trial moved to July for Fremont County man charged with sexual abuse of a minor

    All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

    (Lander, WY) – The jury trial for 72-year-old Fremont County man Donald Detimore has been moved from May to July, according to documents filed on February 21.

    Detimore faces one count of sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree, one count of third degree sexual abuse of a minor, and two counts of immoral or indecent acts, all felonies, for reported events occurring from 1978 to 2015.


    Detimore pled “not guilty” to the charges at a January 12 arraignment hearing, and an ensuing May 15 jury trial was eventually scheduled.

    However, the State, represented by Patrick LeBrun, filed a motion on February 7 requesting to move the jury trial on behalf of one of the victims, due to a scheduling conflict.

    The motion was ultimately accepted, and the May 15 jury trial was vacated and reset for July 24.

    County 10 will provide updates once they become available, which can be viewed here.
