March 17, 2023 7:02AM CDT
Jaron Rosien, the mayor of Washington, is scheduled to appear in court next Friday due to allegations of third-degree sexual abuse that took place in his bar in late January. At the arraignment, Rosien’s charges will be listed and he will have an opportunity to enter a plea. If Rosien pleads innocent, Judge Joel Yates will set his court date, which Iowa law mandates must be held within 90 days, barring a waiver of his right to a speedy trial. Iowa Assistant Attorney General Maureen Hughes has been selected as the prosecutor for the case.
