The trial of a California man accused of sexually assaulting a minor was pushed back seven months so more evidence can be gathered.

According to court documents, Jarvis, the victim — also of California — and several other people were watching fireworks on a boat on Lake Tahoe for the Fourth of July when the alleged incident occurred. Jarvis reportedly had been drinking.

Jarvis was 18 at the time; the victim was 15.

His trial, previously set for early March, was moved to October.
