A date has been set for a new trial in Leavenworth County District Court for a man whose 2016 conviction for aggravated battery was overturned.

Clayton D. Wilmer, who remains in prison for a conviction in another case, did not appear in court Wednesday. But Wilmer's court-appointed attorney, Charles Osborn, appeared on the defendant's behalf.

Wilmer, 28, was convicted Jan. 26, 2016, of felony counts of aggravated battery and robbery and misdemeanor charges of criminal restraint and intimidation of a witness.

The charges stemmed from an Aug. 3, 2014 incident. Wilmer is alleged to have entered the victim's home and repeatedly punched her. At one point, he allegedly took away the victim's phone when she tried to call 911.

Wilmer was sentenced March 23, 2016, to 16 years and two months in prison.

Late last year, the Kansas Court of Appeals overturned the conviction. The appellate judges found that the judge in Wilmer's case had erred by allowing testimony of an expert about domestic violence and the presentation of evidence about another incident involving Wilmer and the same victim.

The case was remanded back to Leavenworth County District Court for a new trial.

“I’ve reviewed the case briefly,” Osborn said Wednesday in court.

He asked the judge to schedule another court appearance in about a month.

District Judge Gunnar Sundby said he wanted to go ahead and schedule a new trial to ensure that speedy trial requirements are met.

Sundby scheduled the trial for June 11. He set a pretrial conference for April 11.

Wilmer was convicted in another case in 2016. This case also was appealed, but the Kansas Court of Appeals recently upheld convictions in this case for criminal discharge of a firearm at an occupied vehicle, aggravated endangering a child and criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. But the appellate judges overturned a conviction in this case for aggravated assault.
