September 06, 2002|by KIMBERLY YAKOWSKI

A bench warrant was issued for a Hagerstown man who failed to appear for a jury trial Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.

Judge Donald E. Beachley delayed court for 10 minutes Thursday to see if Michael Blaine Shatzer would show up. When he didn't, Beachley issued the warrant.

Shatzer, 43, of 221 Summer St. was charged with a second- and a fourth-degree sexual offense and second-degree assault.

Charging documents allege that Shatzer sexually abused a juvenile from April 2000 to August 2001 in his home.
