Preliminary hearing delayed for former deputy

A preliminary hearing for former San Bernardino County sheriff’s Deputy Nathan Gastineau was postponed this morning until November so attorneys can have more time to review evidence.

Gastineau, 30, of Redlands, is charged with three counts of committing lewd acts with a minor and three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse. He is accused of having sex with a teen police Explorer.

His Redlands-based attorney, Andrew Haynal, asked San Bernardino Superior Court Judge John Martin for a continuance because he just received additional discovery or evidence in the case.

Gastineau is scheduled to return to court Nov. 1 to determine if the case is ready for a preliminary hearing Nov. 3.
