The pre-trial conference for Domenique Wilson was postponed for a fourth time Wednesday morning.

Wilson, 23, is suspected in a home invasion and sexual assault that occurred at 44th and Spruce Streets on Dec. 19 of last year.

The pre-trial conference, a meeting between the lawyers and judge to discuss how the case will proceed, is now scheduled for Jan. 20. The most recent delay of the conference is meant to give Wilson’s lawyer more time to prepare, as the case was recently reassigned to a different court-appointed attorney.

In February, Wilson was arrested in Lock Haven, Pa. on 36 criminal counts, including 12 related to an incident in which he allegedly held three students with a knife against their will and sexually assaulted two of them at Lock Haven University, where Wilson had previously been a student and basketball player. DNA evidence also links him to a similar incident that occurred in Oct. 2008 on 9th and Clinton Streets in Center City.

Wilson allegedly attempted to escape from the Clinton County Correctional Facility in late February. He is currently being held at the Detention Center in Philadelphia.
