A detention hearing has been canceled for a former Arkansas youth baseball coach accused of taking a minor across state lines for sex.
61-year-old Walter Richard Roberts of Texarkana pleaded not guilty last month to a charge of transporting a minor across state lines with the intention of having sex.
The judge overseeing Roberts' case said his detention hearing slated for Tuesday has been canceled and will be rescheduled at a later date if requested.
Prosecutors said Roberts was a youth baseball coach from 1986 through 1994.
An indictment alleges that Roberts transported a minor across state lines with the intent to engage in sexual activity in the late '80s.
Roberts' lawyer didn't immediately return a phone message left Monday evening. Court records show Roberts was in custody.
