Del Man Accused In Sex Crime Gets New Trial

Posted: Updated:

 

DOVER, Del. - A Delaware man convicted of illegally touching a teenager at a sleep over party is getting a new trial.

Steven Schwan's sex-offense convictions were reversed after the court realized the judge didn't properly question a juror, who knew a state prosecutor not involved in the case.

State police investigated the sexual assault in June of 2011, after Schwan reportedly entered a bedroom where the 17-year-old female was sleeping. It was there that he allegedly inappropriately touched the teen.
