TARRANT COUNTY (KFDX/KJTL) — The jury selection for the trial of Anthony Ryan Patterson has been delayed even further.
The selection process will resume at 8:30 a.m. Monday, November 6, 2023, according to 78th District Judge, Meredith Kennedy.
Proceedings were initially delayed at the request of Patterson’s defense team due to someone on the defense team suffering from back issues.
Jury selection for the trial of Patterson formally began on Monday afternoon, October 30, 2023.
It has been almost three years since the former Wichita Falls businessman was first arrested for allegations of child sexual abuse and trafficking.
Patterson, 47, faces allegations involving two girls, 8 and 10, in late 2017.
Further details on the case proceedings have not been released at this time.
