Michael Merrick’s arraignment, which was scheduled for today, was pushed back until Sept. 8, as a result of Merrick’s attorney being unable to be present.

Merrick’s attorney, Elizabeth Grossman, has been visiting the East Coast and has been unable to return due to canceled travel plans from the effects of Hurricane Irene.

On Aug. 12, Judge Nancy Davis Stark determined there was enough evidence against Merrick to proceed to trial on 25 felony counts and one misdemeanor charge relating to an alleged sexual relationship Merrick had with a student he was tutoring in his Stanley Middle School classroom.
