Tentative court date set for rural Scottsbluff man accused of sexually assaulting a child

An October trial date has been tentatively set for a Rural Scottsbluff man charged with 1st Degree Sexual Assault of a Child and 3rd Degree Sexual Assault of a Child.

70-year-old Jimmy Darnell was arraigned on the charges on Friday afternoon in Scotts Bluff County District Court.

During that appearance, Darnell waived his right to a speedy trial, and motions for discovery and depositions were filed and granted.

He’s accused of sexually assaulting the girl when she was 5 or 6 years old, but has pleaded not guilty to the allegations.

A pre-trial hearing was set for Sept. 18, with a trial scheduled for the jury term beginning Oct. 1. The court also entered a mutual no contact order in the case.
