GEORGETOWN, Del.- Former Sussex County politician Eric Bodenweiser, accused of sexually abusing a boy more than 20 years ago, is scheduled back in Superior Court on July 8.

According to Sussex County Superior Court, the hearing on July 8 will be a suppression hearing motion and closed off to the public, however, trial is likely the next destination.

According to the indictment obtained by WBOC News, the indictment against the 53-year-old Bodenweiser of Georgetown consists of 113 total counts, including 39 counts of first-degree unlawful sexual intercourse and 74 counts of second-degree unlawful sexual contact.

Bodenweiser is charged with the sexual abuse of a boy under the age of 16 between October 1987 and August 1990. He is out on $250,000 bail made by bond in October of last year.

Bodenweiser withdrew from the race for Delaware's 19th District Senate seat last year shortly before the allegations surfaced. He won the Republican Primary before suspending his campaign.

The Sussex County Republican Committee subsequently threw its support behind write-in candidate and eventual winner Brian Petty john, Georgetown's former mayor and a former councilman.
