The misdemeanor case against Corona Police Cpl. Margaret Bell is being delayed until Dec. 5.
Riverside County District Attorney’s officials said new developments in the case are requiring additional investigation, which caused a delay in the start of the trial that was expected to begin this week. They are not releasing details about the new developments.
Bell is accused of failing to report suspected child abuse by her pastor and two parishioners against a 13-year-old boy in the Heart of Worship Community Church in Corona that she attended. If convicted, she faces up to a year in jail, a $1,000 fine, or both.
