TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A man charged with sexually assaulting at least two women when he was on duty as a Tulsa County Sheriff’s deputy is asking for a delay in his trial.

Gerald Nuckolls is scheduled to go on trial Monday on sexual battery and indecent exposure charges. Nuckolls resigned from the sheriff’s department shortly after his arrest last September and has pleaded not guilty.

Defense attorney Terry Funk says a judge will decide whether to delay the trial at a hearing Friday in Tulsa district court. Even if a delay is granted, Funk indicated Thursday that he expected the case to go to trial without a plea agreement between prosecutors and Nuckolls.

Nuckolls had worked for the sheriff’s office for two years before his arrest.
