Cassandra "Cassie" Elfers and her attorney Eric Deters appeared in Pendleton District Court on January 29, 2013 and entered a plea of not guilty to the charges of sexual abuse.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled at 1 p.m. on February 12. Deters told The Falmouth Outlook in an interview that based on what his client has told him, and she hasn't been untruthful, her case is defendable.

"This is the fourth case having to do with a sexual abuse charge I have defended," stated Deters. His most recent case was with a teacher at Dixie Heights, Sara Jones. Cassandra had her for a teacher when she attended Dixie Heights High School.
