OGDEN — A court hearing for a former LDS Church bishop charged with sexually abusing young girls has been delayed, while his attorney considers new charges.

During an appearance in 2nd District Court on Wednesday, Timothy O'Sean McCleve's attorney announced that Weber County prosecutors had filed amended charges.

"I need to go over that with my client," Shawn Robinson told the judge.

That delayed a hearing in which McCleve, 53, was expected to change his plea. The hearing has now been scheduled for Sept. 24. Robinson declined comment on the case outside of court. It is unclear what the new charges are.

McCleve was charged with three counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child, a first-degree felony, and a single charge of second-degree felony child sex abuse.

Harrisville police allege that, until 2004, McCleve was bishop over a local ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that some of the alleged victims attended. He would often visit them at home, police said, where some of the alleged abuse occurred.
