A former UI student's third-degree sexual-abuse trial has been reset.

Evan M. Pfeifer, 18, Lake Barrigton, Ill., was arrested after allegedly raping a woman on the Pentacrest in October 2010.

Pfeifer's pretrial conference is set for July 13, and his trial for July 24 in the Johnson County Courthouse.

According to a complaint from University of Iowa police, a woman told authorities she was walking to the dorms in the early morning hours of Oct. 3, 2010, when a male stranger pushed her to the ground under a tree on the west side of the Pentacrest.

The woman told officers Pfeifer put his hand over her mouth and had non-consensual sex with her while she begged him to "stop" and said "no."

Court documents said less than two weeks later the alleged victim's sister used a guise to get Pfeifer's name when he was seen in front of Currier Residence Hall.

Pfeifer waived his right to a speedy trial, including any right to a one-year speedy trial, according to court documents.
