Andrew Hellman

At a court appearance earlier this week before Yavapai Superior Court Judge William Kiger, Humboldt resident Andrew Hellman asked for a continuance so lawyers could have more time to review information in his child molestation case.

The 49-year-old Hellman - a former firefighter for Central Yavapai Fire District from 1990 to 2006 - is in jail on charges of eight counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, 10 counts of child molestation, two counts of sexual abuse, three counts of felony indecent exposure and three counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure. Authorities arrested Hellman in October.

During a brief courtroom appearance Monday, Hellman's attorney said Hellman may be considering entering a plea in the case and attorneys need time to review additional information.

His next court appearance is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. April 6 in Division 5 of Yavapai County Superior Court in Prescott.
