The former Manhattan restaurant owner accused of multiple rapes may have his trial in March of next year.
District Judge Kendra Lewison set the next scheduling hearing for October 5th in the Bob Iacobellis case, stating she expects that his trial will need to be held in a larger venue.
Iacobellis is charged with 27 sexual assault and rape counts stemming from allegations brought by four women, three who were minors at the time of their interactions.
Lewison stated she believes his trial will have to be held in the Wareham to allow for the numbers of spectators who will likely want to be on hand. The other option mentioned would be to open up another courtroom equipped with closed circuit TV for overflow.
Iacobellis was arrested in early August 2019 and has remained in custody at the Riley County Jail since then.
