Still awaiting additional charges to be filed, a new status hearing for a former Northview Elementary paraprofessional was scheduled for August.
Aaron Zachry on Monday appeared via video in Riley County District Court represented by attorney Cole Hawver, facing nearly three dozen counts including sexual exploitation of a child. Scheduled for arraignment, that’s once again been postponed again until August 15.
Zachry was arrested nearly a year ago by Riley County Police, who after investigating a call of suspicious activity at Northview Pool say they found nude photos of minors on Zachry’s cell-phone. The case has been continued numerous times, most recently on May 23rd, as investigators continue to conduct interviews and prepare additional charges.
Deputy Riley County Attorney Trinity Muth previously indicated additional felony charges are pending, and that they’ll motion to consolidate the matters into a single case once they are filed. Muth said Monday there are also allegations against Zachry out of Junction City, and that prosecutors are working to sort out those stemming from Riley as opposed to Geary County.
Judge Kendra Lewison set the status for her 2:30 p.m. docket on August 15.
