A trial has been scheduled in the case of a man accused of abusing a child in Leavenworth.

The case of Ryan K. Fish is scheduled to go to trial Aug. 29.

Fish is charged with one count of abuse of a child. The criminal complaint alleges that Fish inflicted cruel and inhuman corporal punishment by scratching the face of a child who was born in 2004. The crime is alleged to have occurred Jan. 12, 2015.

Fish had been charged for the same incident last year. But that case was dismissed in September. A new case was filed against him in March, court records show.

The trial date was selected when Fish appeared Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court.

Fish's attorney, Elaine Halley, indicated she plans to file a motion seeking to have the girl who is identified as the victim in the case undergo a psychological evaluation.

"I need to know what's going on with this girl," Halley said.

Halley said she also would like to know what is happening in a separate child in need of care case. Halley is not part of that case and has been unable to obtain the information.

District Judge Gunnar Sundby, who is presiding over the criminal case, said he cannot order another judge to turn over information in the child in need of care case. But Sundby said he will speak with the other judge.

Court records indicate Fish lives in Missouri. Court records list his employer as the Army.
