TULSA - An accused child molester and former TPS administrator will be in front of a judge Monday.
Robert Yerton Junior faces five counts, including child sexual abuse and lewd molestation.
During the preliminary hearing a judge will decide whether there is enough evidence for the case against Yerton to go to trial.
About six witnesses are expected to take the stand from both the defense and the prosecution.
Yerton's attorney, Richard O'Carroll, says during the hearing he will reveal 'problems and motives' behind the accusations.
Yerton is accused of misconduct involving four children, the defense says they are not expected to take the stand. O'Carroll says thinks they should.
"I think Mr. Yerton has a constitutional right to confront witnesses, you've got a constitutional right to a preliminary hearing and he should be entitled to cross examine," said O'Carroll.
The preliminary hearing will officially get started at 1:30 Monday afternoon, the judge says it will end Monday, even if it lasts late into the evening.
