Preece pleads innocent to second charge

From Staff Reports

A former WSU administrator has pleaded innocent to a second charge of child molestation.

Judson W. Preece, 50, worked for the WSU Alumni Association until he was arrested in August for second-degree child molestation.

The state filed an additional charge of first-degree child molestation in October after investigators found a second victim who is younger than 12 years old.

Preece was arraigned at the Whitman County Courthouse and his trial is scheduled for Jan. 13.
