The sex assault trial of a member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic judo team has been postponed until April while he recuperates from injuries sustained in a car crash in Florida.
Adler Volmar was in 4th Judicial District Court Monday to face charges that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl in a Colorado Springs hotel.

The case was continued, however, to April 23 after Judge David A. Gilbert learned that Volmar is on pain-killing medication as a result of the injuries he sustained in the crash.
In the meantime, Gilbert encouraged both sides in the case to undergo the mediation process.
“Talk to each other if you would,” Gilbert said.
