HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — There has been a fifth delay in the jury trial for a Hutchinson bondsman accused of seeking sex from women in exchange for bonding them out of jail.

Dwight Jurgens is accused of coercing woman he bailed out of Reno County Jail to have sexual contact with him between February 2010 and September 2012. He posted a $100,000 bond after he was arrested.

Charges against him include aggravated human trafficking and rape.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/Tu619A ) the trial was scheduled to begin in late September 2013. Defense lawyers asked for the first three continuances. Deputy District Attorney Tom Stanton asked for the latest two continuances, the latest on May 20.

Jurgens’ trial has been rescheduled for June 3.
