Trial delayed for man accused of attacking police officer

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The trial of a former University of Iowa student accused of attacking an Iowa City police officer has been delayed.

21-year-old Branden Plummer is charged with attempted murder and willful injury in the attack on Sgt. Brian Krei on November 18.

The trial had been scheduled to begin May 14, but a judge granted a defense request for the delay. The trial is now scheduled for September 14.

The trial will be held in Tama County because of concerns about finding a fair jury in Johnson County.

Plummer has pleaded not guilty.

He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of both offenses.
