A preliminary hearing for Randolph Haldeman, the Menlo Park man accused of molesting children at his home and at a community swimming pool, has been moved to Dec. 18 to give his attorney more time to investigate the case, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.
The decision, made on Tuesday (Nov. 5) by Judge Raymond Swope of the San Mateo County Superior Court, was the second setting of a preliminary hearing since Haldeman was arraigned on Aug. 22.
Haldeman, who is facing 20 sexual assault charges, pleaded not guilty to the charges on Sept. 9.
He was initially arrested on July 25 on two counts of "lewd and lascivious acts" with boys ranging in age from 8 to 13 years at his home and at the Ladera Recreation Center. He was released on bail hours later.
After the arrest was reported, eight more individuals came forward to report being sexually assaulted by Haldeman, and he was re-arrested on Aug. 21, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
Haldeman remains in custody on $5 million bail.
