Kiffmeyer Will Have to Wait
May 7th trial date for Rep. Mark Olson.
The SC Times:
ELK RIVER — State Rep. Mark Olson will stand trial May 7 on two misdemeanor counts of domestic assault.
The trial date was set during a pretrial hearing today in Sherburne County District Court.
Olson had asked that the trial take place in June, after the legislative session closes, but that request was denied.
Olson has pleaded not guilty to the charges that stem from an incident Nov. 12 at the Olsons’ home in Big Lake Township.
Olson’s wife told deputies she and Mark Olson had argued and that he had pushed her to the ground three times.
