A hearing for a former assistant principal accused of sexually abusing a child has been delayed.

Larry Ray Jewell faces nearly 50 counts of sex crimes. He was set to have a probable cause hearing Tuesday, but it has been postponed until March 13.

Jewell's attorney said he needs more time to round up additional witnesses.

Jewell was an assistant principal at Southeast Raleigh High School until his arrest on Feb. 15.
