Recusal hearing for judge in Adrian Peterson case delayed

CONROE, Texas (AP) – The hearing on whether to remove the judge in the felony child abuse case against Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson has been pushed back.

Mary Flood, a spokeswoman for Peterson attorney Rusty Hardin, said Tuesday the recusal hearing for Montgomery County District Judge Kelly Case has been rescheduled for Oct. 22. Retired Tarrant County District Judge Jeff Walker will preside.

Peterson is charged with injury to a child for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son. A not guilty plea is expected.

Prosecutors want to replace Case, who chided attorneys in the case in a derogatory manner. Once that is settled, a motion to revoke Peterson’s bond for alleged marijuana use will be considered.

Case set a tentative trial date for Dec. 1. Peterson is on paid leave.
