GREAT FALLS, Mont. -
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - The trial of a pediatrician accused of sexually abusing young boys on Montana's Blackfeet Indian Reservation two decades ago has been delayed.
Former Indian Health Service pediatrician Stanley Patrick Weber had been scheduled to stand trial Monday on charges of aggravated sexual abuse and attempted sexual abuse of two boys below the age of 14 when he worked on the reservation between 1992 and 1995.
Weber is also accused of abusing four boys after he was assigned to South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation in 1995.
He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Great Falls trial was rescheduled to Sept. 4 due to what U.S. District Court officials described without elaboration as "an unforeseen issue (that) arose over the weekend."
Weber's South Dakota charges against are still pending.
