MASON CITY — A plea change hearing is scheduled for a former North Iowa Area Community College student accused of sexual abuse two years ago.
20-year-old Rugde Hyppolite of Naples Florida was charged with third-degree sexual abuse after authorities say he committed an unwanted sexual act on a woman late on the night of October 1st 2017 on the NIACC campus.
Hyppolite was scheduled to go on trial on Tuesday, but online court records show District Judge James Drew recently approved the setting of a plea change hearing for August 5th in Cerro Gordo County District Court.
