A new hearing date has been announced for a Manhattan businessman accused of more than 100 counts of sexual abuse with minors.
Robert Iacobellis was initially due in Riley County District Court April 2, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that hearing has been pushed to 9 a.m. on May 14. Iacobellis faces 130 total counts of sex-related crimes against three alleged victims, all under the age of 18. He was arrested in early August 2019 and remains in custody on a $400,000 bond.
Online court records show Iacobellis served an eviction notice in late February against his daughter and Bob’s Diner manager Jamie Berges for rent payments for January and February. The eviction notice is for a rental property in Manhattan, owned by Iacobellis.
A March 25 answer hearing was canceled due to the courthouse closure. A reschedule date for that case hasn’t been determined.
