HUTCHINSON, Kansas — The often-delayed trial for a Kansas bail bondsman accused of coercing women he bailed out of jail to have sex with him is now scheduled for Sept. 9.

Sixty-six-year-year-old Dwight Jurgens is accused of two counts of aggravated human trafficking, four counts of attempted aggravated human trafficking, aggravated criminal sodomy and rape.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/1tozY7E ) prosecutors allege Jurgens told four women he bailed out of jail that he would revoke their bonds if they didn't have sex with him. The alleged crimes occurred between 2010 and September 2012. He was a bonding agent for TNT Bonding.

Jurgens pleaded innocent in June 2013. His trial has been delayed several times, including in June after he suffered a heart attack.
