WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - A federal judge has set a new trial day for the former CEO of a Centre County museum awaiting trial on child-sex charges.

Sixty-seven-year-old Christopher G. Lee has been jailed since October 2014 on charges he enticed a 17-year-old girl to cross state lines to have sex with him. That allegedly occurred at Boal Mansion Museum in Boalsburg, where students from around the world work as volunteer guides.

The new trial date in Williamsport is March 7.

The trial has been delayed several times by defense motions and by new charge that Lee enticed a minor to create child pornography in 2005 and 2006, and tampered with unspecified evidence on a cellphone.

The judge in Williamsport has ruled the new charges will be tried separately. Lee has pleaded not guilty.
