Preliminary hearing delayed for former correctional deputy Cory Fisher

EUREKA – A hearing to determine if former correctional deputy Cory Fisher will stand trial for child sexual abuse has been delayed.
The public defender had a conflict that forced the courts to appoint the office of conflict counsel. Fisher’s new attorney requested a delay to the proceedings.
In addition, the deputy district attorney is working to amend the charges against Fisher.
That complaint has not been filed. A motion hearing to consider the changes and a proposed gag order is set for next Wednesday.
The preliminary is now scheduled for mid-February.
30-year-old Fisher was extradited from San Bernardino after Eureka Police found evidence of long term sexual abuse of three boys under the age of 15.
Fisher denied being responsible for those crimes at his arraignment in September. He remains in jail on 3 million dollars bail.
