Former Columbia County commissioner Scott Dean is seeking a retrial on his conviction for child molestation.
A hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on June 15 before Superior Court Judge James G. Blanchard Jr., where the judge will hear a motion for a new trial.
Dean’s attorney, Pete Theodocion, filed the motion on Feb. 23.
The motion must be filed within 30 days of the conviction, Blanchard said.
If Blanchard denies the motion, Dean can appeal that decision, said Assistant District Attorney Parks White.
