Desmond Triplett’s Trial Set For June
A man accused of sexually assaulting girls in cases that go back 40 years is scheduled to go on trial in Natrona County District Court in June.
District Court Judge Catherine Wilking set the five-day trial for Desmond Triplett for June 8 during a scheduling conference Friday.
The last day Triplett could enter a change of plea would be June 5, Wilking said.
Triplett, 64, is accused of four counts of immoral acts with a minor, two counts of first degree sexual abuse of a minor, and one count of second degree sexual abuse of a minor.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges in January.
He is free on $25,000 bond awaiting trial.
If convicted, he could face between 25-to-50 years in prison on the first degree sexual abuse of a minor charge, up to 20 years in prison on the second degree sexual abuse of a minor charge, and up to 10 years in prison on each of the indecent liberties with a minor charge.
