A judge has set a trial date for a local sheriff accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl.

Barbour County Sheriff John Hawkins will appear in federal court on September 30, 2014.

The woman, now 19, also accused Hawkins of five other charges.

The Barbour County Commission said it has found no evidence to support those charges and will fight them separately.
