Pollock case continued

A non-jury trial on misdemeanor charges that an Island man aided a juvenile runaway has been continued to later this month.

The trial stems from an arrest last year involving Jack A. Pollock, 19, who more recently was arrested on felony charges involving another juvenile runaway.

Pollock was again arrested on April 3 in Anna Maria and has pleaded not guilty to charges of aiding, abusing and molesting a teenage runaway in connection with that arrest.

A Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy looking for a female runaway reportedly found her engaged in sexual activity with Pollock in a wooded area in Anna Maria.

His arraignment in the 2007 case is set for May 18.

Meanwhile, the case resulting from the prior arrest continues at the Manatee County Courthouse.

A non-jury trial was set for April 27, but was continued until May 25 at the request of the attorney preparing the case.

In that case, Pollock is charged with two first-degree misdemeanors - aiding an unmarried runaway and contributing to the delinquency or dependency of a child.

Two relatives - Charles Pollock and Sandra Pollock - are facing misdemeanor charges of aiding an unmarried runaway and contributing to the delinquency or dependency of a child.

Court records in the case allege that the offenses occurred on Sept. 15, 2006.
