Editor’s Note: Child pornography charges were eventually dismissed.

BRECKENRIDGE – Dennis Flint may be tried by jury this March on misdemeanor charges – including child abuse and third-degree assault involving his daughter – stemming from an incident in December 2008.

Judge D. Wayne Patton on Tuesday scheduled a trial for March 22 pending motions from the former Summit County CEO’s attorneys to have the charges dropped.

Flint had been scheduled for jury trial on the case in August, but that trial did not occur.

Regarding a felony case against Flint involving charges of child pornography possession, Tuesday’s preliminary hearing was postponed to Jan. 19 at 11 a.m. because Flint’s attorney told the judge he had a family emergency.

The felony charges date back to content found on two computer hard drives in 2006; Flint was arrested in March after the FBI handed the case over to local authorities.

On the misdemeanor case, the public defender’s office is representing Flint.

On the felony case, Flint continues to be represented by Colorado Springs attorney Timothy Bussey, who tried to withdraw in November and told the judge his client was unable to financially support his defense.
