Originally scheduled for Nov. 16, the court date for a former Central Michigan University student accused of sexual misconduct and sexual assault has been rescheduled for Dec. 3.

Ian Elliott, 24, of Cheboygan, was due back in court on Friday after motion to reinstate a case against him and resume proceedings was filed by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette on Oct. 31.

The court date has since been rescheduled to 1:15 p.m. Dec. 3, said Megan Hawthorne, press secretary for the attorney general. 

At the Dec. 3 hearing, Judge Mark H. Duthie will make a decision on the motion filed by Schuette to determine if the case will be reopened, Hawthorne said.

Elliott previously served as president of the CMU Student Government Association during the fall semester of 2016. 

Elliott was originally charged with two felony counts of sexual misconduct in the third degree and one felony count of assault with attempt to penetrate following an incident occurring on Sept. 1, 2016, where Elliott allegedly sexually assaulted CMU graduate student Rachel Wilson

A trial was previously scheduled for May 7, 2018, but the case was dismissed by the Isabella County Prosecuting Office on April 6, 2018.
