Courts

Comedian to stand trial on sex charges

A West Virginia judge on Friday ordered comedian Andy Dick to stand trial on felony sexual abuse charges stemming from a nightclub incident last year.

Cabell County Circuit Judge Paul Farrell set trial for Jan. 17 and ordered the entertainer to submit to a urine test. The judge told Dick he would be jailed if he returned to court for a pretrial hearing in September under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

“I understand. I’ve been sober,” the blond-haired, bespectacled actor told the judge.

Dick, 45, is accused of grabbing a bouncer’s crotch and groping and kissing a male patron earlier at a Huntington, W.Va., bar in January, 2010. He was in town for a performance at the Funny Bone Comedy Club.
