The case against a Bell City man charged with molesting a child has been pushed to September.  Shawn Al Green, who was arrested in April, is charged with two counts of statutory sodomy with a person younger than 14 and first-degree endangering the welfare of a child.  He’ll next be in court Wednesday in a Dunklin County for an update on the case's status. All pretrial motions are due Aug. 13th.  A two-day jury trial before Judge Robert Mayer is scheduled for Sept. 4th and 5th. The charges brought against Green stem from interviews with his alleged victim dating back to December 2010. Those interviews involved the Missouri Children's Division and forensic interviewers from the Ozark Foothills Child Advocacy Center in Doniphan.
