A new motion has been filed by the Taney County prosecutors office in the Pete Newman case.

Prosecutor Jeff Merrell filed the motion yesterday citing Missouri's new Child Protection Act that went into effect back in August.

Merrell says, "I filed the motion in an attempt to protect the victims in our case."

Judge Tony Williams will rule on the state's motion next Monday at 1 p.m.--that is the day before Newman's preliminary hearing.
