Curran English Arraignment Postponed to May
March 9, 2020
Curran English appeared in court at 8:15 Friday morning for his arraignment concerning his sexual assault allegations. Represented once again by defense attorney Mike Rafik and his partner Steve Jacobson, English did not take the stand at any point during the 30-second proceedings. Instead, he sat beside his parents in the gallery while Rafik took the stand.
Rafik did not submit English’s plea of guilty vs not-guilty and instead asked for more time to prepare. Rafik cited another preliminary hearing concerning a different round of sexual assault allegations against English as the reason English would benefit from submitting his plea at a later date. This hearing, which will be English’s second preliminary hearing concerning sexual assault allegations this year, is set for April 2; it will be his first for which he is not tried as an adult.
The judge agreed to Rafik’s request for a later arraignment date and scheduled English for May 29 at 8:15 a.m. in the Boulder County Courthouse.
