PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The trial for a woman accused of sex abuse involving a 17-year-old boy on a track team she coached at a central Oregon high school has been postponed.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/TjlsRJ ) Melissa Bowerman’s trial had been scheduled to start Sept. 14 but is now set for Nov. 30. The 44-year-old is charged with sexual abuse, using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct and luring a minor.

Bowerman also faces sex abuse charges in a separate case involving the same alleged victim. The charges were brought after authorities obtained new information. Bowerman pleaded not guilty to those charges Wednesday.

Bowerman is married to Jon Bowerman, the son of Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman. Jon Bowerman previously said he helped his wife coach the Madras High School track team.
