A court hearing for the Mayor of Stockport who is facing a sex charge has been delayed. Morgan County Prosecutor Mark Howdyshell says a preliminary hearing for Michael Shane Shuster was set for today at 1 p.m. but it won’t happen until Wednesday at 11 a.m. Howdyshell says the Attorney for Shuster requested a continuance due to another case. Morgan County Sheriff Tom Jenkins says last Monday his office received a report from Morgan County Children’s Services of an alleged rape of a juvenile. Sheriff Jenkins says after an investigation the 38-year-old Mayor was arrested. Shuster is being held in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
