Trial canceled due to change of plea for New Salem man accused of raping child’s babysitter
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - The trial for a New Salem man accused of raping his child’s babysitter has been canceled by a district court judge due to a change of plea.
Prosecutors say Alexander Stump-Milam provided alcohol to minors who were babysitting his child in March 2021. A witness told law enforcement they later walked in on Stump-Milam raping an unconscious person in a bedroom.
Stump-Milam was scheduled to stand trial Monday for felony gross sexual imposition, but he is now amending his plea.
Judge Bruce Romanick has ordered a presentence investigation. A change of plea and sentencing hearing has been scheduled for July 29.
