Breitenbach trial date pushed back to July 30th

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) - The case against a man accused of a brutal attack on a Wichita girl is moving forward.

Tuesday afternoon, Corbin Breitenbach was back before a judge at the Sedgwick County Courthouse to discuss motions and the next steps in the process.

Breitenbach, representing himself, was very vocal during the hour long hearing.

He asked for a full acquittal on all charges, saying the media coverage of the case won't allow him a fair trial. 

Breitenbach also questioned the charges against him. He is charged with attempted capital murder and aggravated sodomy, among other charges. 

While in jail, Breitenbach says he's been attacked, and he doesn't want his prior record being brought up at trial.

"My criminal history is personal information, but it is also public record, my criminal history should not be part of a trial that has nothing to do with my history," said Breitenbach.

The judge denied all of Breitenbach's motions Tuesday afternoon and set the next date to be court. 

He will be back in court on June 28 for a pre-trial hearing at 3 p.m.

His trial is now scheduled to start July 30.
