The trial of retired Tacoma police officer Lee William Giles Jr. and his girlfriend, Maureen Wear, has been put off again.

Giles and Wear, charged in August 2006 with a litany of child sex crimes, were scheduled to go to trial tomorrow.

But deputy prosecutor John Sheeran asked Superior Court Judge Bryan Chushcoff for a delay Monday, explaining that he’s in trial on another case right now.

Chushcoff granted Sheeran’s request. Giles and Wear now are scheduled to got to trial Nov. 26.

Prosecutors contend the Giles and Wear molested young relatives for years and videotaped some of the abuse. Both defendants have pleaded not guilty.
