A California judge on Tuesday delayed witness testimony set for this week in the sexual assault case of David Walter Osborne, a former Austin financial adviser, who is accused of attacking a woman last year during a luxury golf trip to Pebble Beach. Osborne was accompanied on the trip with two people investigators described as "high-profile friends."


Monterey County Superior Court Judge Rafael Vazquez agreed today with the attorney for Osborne—who is in Texas while he awaits trial on four felony charges—that the risks of catching COVID-19 were too high for him to travel cross-country for the preliminary hearing.

That hearing, initially scheduled for Thursday, was reset for July 23.

Osborne was not in court on Tuesday but will be required to appear in person for the July testimony. It was not clear whether he would testify.
