LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Arraignment was postponed for a 56-year-old former storefront church pastor accused of sexually assaulting young girls in his Las Vegas-area congregation.

A court hearing master on Monday rescheduled ex-United Faith Church leader Otis Holland's court appearance for April 8.

Holland is expected to plead not guilty to one count of lewdness with a child under 14 and eight felony child sex charges. He could face prison for the rest of his life if he's convicted.

Holland's public defense lawyer wasn't in court.

Attorney Robert Langford is the special prosecutor in the case. He said there had been a scheduling mix-up.

Holland allegedly fled to Mexico in early 2011after Henderson police arrested him on allegations that he abused several girls in his congregation under the guise of counseling.
