LEXINGTON — Another trial date has been changed for one of six family members accused of molesting young relatives about 20 years ago in western Missouri.

Jared Mohler was scheduled to stand trial March 28 in Lafayette County on one count of using a child in a sexual performance. On Tuesday, that date was canceled, and another trial date is scheduled to be selected March 21.

Mohler's father, uncle and three brothers also face various felony charges stemming from claims they abused young relatives in the mid-1980s at a farm in Lafayette County.

Court dates for other members of the family have also been changed. As of Wednesday, the earliest trial date was May 9 for 73-year-old Darrel Mohler.
