Cedar Rapids (KWWL) -- The teen accused of beating a Cedar Rapids police officer has a new trial date.

18 year old Jose Rockiett was in a Linn County courtroom this afternoon as his attorney asked for a continuance since the trial has been moved.  And that continuance was granted.

Rockiett's trial is now set for February 9th of next year in Des Moines County.

Rockiett is charged with assaulting Officer Tim Davis back in March.  The assault left Officer Davis in the hospital for months.  He is back to work for a couple of hours a day as he recovers.
