A judge has set a new trial date for a man accused of groping several women around the University of Iowa campus.
 
Judge Christopher Bruns on Friday set trial for Adam Weinstein, 34, of Iowa City, for Nov. 28. The trial had been on hold until another psychological evaluation, this one requested by the state, could be conducted. That evaluation took place last week.
 
Weinstein’s trial has been delayed for some time after he was deemed incompetent to stand trial last November and was involuntarily committed to the Iowa Medical and Classification Center. A judge ruled in February that Weinstein’s competency had been restored and he is fit to stand trial.
 
He’s accused of groping multiple women on or near the UI campus over two days in November 2015. His attorneys have listed multiple defenses for their client, including insanity, diminished capacity and intoxication.
 
Weinstein is charged with one count of 3rd Degree Sexual Abuse, four counts of Assault with Intent to Commit Sexual Abuse and three counts of 3rd Degree Harassment. If convicted on all charges, he faces up to 18 years in prison.
