PALESTINE, Texas (KLTV) - A trial date is set for Neches ISD administrator and former elementary school principal, Kimberlyn Ann Snider, on charges of official oppression and tampering with evidence related to a sexual assault of a child investigation.

Snider’s criminal indictment lists five different people whom she allegedly subjected “to detention that the defendant knew was unlawful ... acting under color of her employment as a public servant, namely Neches Elementary Principal.”

On Friday, a traveling judge set an Aug. 8 trial for Snider, who was arrested on the charges in Feb. 2021.

This is the second trial on the same charges for Snider. A mistrial was declared in March after the defense attorney, Steven Green, suffered a medical emergency.
