A hearing is being held in court today on a prosecutor's request for a protective order preventing a Region 9 Board of Education member from having contact with the victim of a sexual assault.
The protective order would be against Sara Sobel and her husband Jon. The Newstimes reports that the victim was abused by Stephen Overby, who has been described in court documents as a close personal friend of Sara Sobel and at one time lived with the couple.
The couple was charged with risk of injury for allegedly failing to cooperate with the state Department of Children and Families in its investigation of the assault.
The complaint against Overby was originally made by Jon Sobel, a former chaplain with the Redding Police Department.
