A trial date has been set for a Reeds Spring facing multiple sex charges involving children.
In April, prosecutors charged John Robert McLaughlin, 72, with seven counts of child molestation, one count statutory sodomy, and two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor. His trial is scheduled to begin on October 9, 2013.
Court records allege he inappropriately touched two girl's, who were five to ten years-old at the time of the alleged assaults, several times from 2002 - 2010 at his home at 416 Othello Road.
McLaughlin, who is being represented by Stacie Bilyeu, is free on bond while he awaits trial.
