Attorneys preparing for forcible sodomy case for Logan man

LOGAN — A 21-year-old Logan man, accused of forcible sodomy, appeared in court for a pre-trial conference in preparation for his four-day trial next month.

Dakota Q. Knight appeared in 1 District Court Monday morning. After meeting with the attorneys in his chambers, Judge Thomas Willmore said defense attorney Wayne Caldwell expressed difficulties investigating the case, but they were continuing to prepare for trial in November.

Knight is alleged to have assaulted a woman in October 2014. The defendant and victim were reportedly acquaintances at the time. He was later charged with forcible sodomy, a first-degree felony.

Previously Caldwell had asked the court for more time while a private investigator interviewed the victim. The four-day jury trial is scheduled to begin November 29.

During Monday’s court appearance, Judge Willmore ordered Knight to appear again in court October 31 for an update on the trial preparation.
