The trial for former Logan County educator Adam Decker has been moved from May 21 to August 6, 2018. Decker is being charged with sexual offenses that allegedly occurred with a 15-year-old female between Sept. 1, 2016, and Feb. 17, 2017.

According to the office of the Commonwealth Attorney, Circuit Judge Tyler Gill will be out of town on May 21 which is why the date was rescheduled. There is no court in Logan County in June and July is set for Todd County cases.

Decker, who is originally from Grayson County, was indicted by a Logan County Grand Jury on June 30, 2017, on one count of prohibited use of an electronic communications system to procure a minor referenced sexual offense; 10 counts of third-degree rape; 11 counts of third-degree sodomy; 10 counts of third-degree sexual abuse; one count of first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor; two counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor, and two counts of distribution of obscene matter to minors.

Once considered a fugitive from justice, it took the Kentucky State Police several weeks to locate Decker after he was indicted. He finally turned himself into authorities on July 18, 2017.

Kentucky State Police Detective Wesley Medley said he has sent Grayson County officers to the home of Decker's parents more than once. Authorities also checked a former apartment he rented in Russellville and had been to Franklin where he was thought to be staying. Medley said he has also contacted Decker's attorney to ask him to have his client turn himself in.

Decker taught and coached basketball at Chandlers School and was also an assistant baseball coach at Logan County High School. He is currently out on bond.
