Trial for accused molester scheduled to begin Feb. 10
Prosecutors in the dozen-year-old case of a Grand Junction man accused of molesting two boys can only present limited evidence at trial, a judge ruled Monday.
Mesa County District Court Judge Thomas Deister ruled on the matter during a motions hearing for Ed Glaze, 76.
Glaze, who was 64 when he jumped bond on the eve of his trial, was arrested in May on a Mesa County warrant when he tried to re-enter the United States from Canada.
Glaze is heading to trial Feb. 10 on charges of molesting two boys who were 12 and 13 when the accusations arose on April 1, 1996.
Deister ruled Monday that prosecutors could bring up evidence of Glaze’s contact with the children, gifts he gave them and the nature of the outings the boys shared with Glaze.
Parents of one of the victims said their son wanted the case to head to trial despite the long time gap.
The victims, who are now in their 20s, are expected to testify at trial.
