Trial reset for Ohio man who rushed stage at Trump rally


DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man who was arrested after he rushed the stage at a Donald Trump rally faces trial next month.

The trial for 22-year-old Thomas DiMassimo is now set to begin June 22 in federal court in Dayton. A May 31 trial date was postponed because of a scheduling conflict.

The Wright State University student has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of illegally entering a restricted area. The charge carries a potential one-year prison sentence and possible fines. DiMassimo was arrested March 12 at a rally for the Republican presidential candidate.

His attorney has said DiMassimo wanted to ensure his political views were heard.

The two sides have said they’ve discussed trying to resolve the case without a trial.
