CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A sexual assault case in Charleston has been delayed again.

Joseph Lentz was supposed to go on trial Tuesday in Kanawha County, but it was delayed until April.

Lentz's attorney says he is considering making a plea deal.

Lentz is accused of sexually abusing two little boys when they were just four and nine-years-old, according to investigators.

This is not the first time Lentz has been in trouble. Court records show, 20 years ago he was convicted of molesting his sister.
