LAS VEGAS – Trial is set Oct. 10 for a Saudi Arabian air force sergeant accused of raping a 13-year-old boy last New Year's Eve at a Las Vegas Strip hotel.
Prosecutors and a defense attorney for Mazen Alotaibi (MAH'-zen ah-loh-TAH'-bee) told a Nevada judge they'll be ready to begin picking a jury after each side reviews key DNA test results.
The 24-year-old Alotaibi has pleaded not guilty to charges including kidnapping, lewdness with a child under 14, sexually motivated coercion and sexual assault of a minor.
He's jailed on $1.7 million bail, and could face life in state prison if he's convicted.
Alotaibi told police he met the boy in a hallway at Circus Circus early Dec. 31.
He maintains that the boy wanted marijuana and offered to exchange sex for money.
