Robert Adams returned to court this morning in the molestation case the former Citrus Heights principal faces, but there are few signs that the matter will be decided anytime soon.

The case was pushed back to Feb. 24, although Adams' attorney, Linda Parisi, said she now has most of the discovery materials prosecutors gathered as evidence during the investigation into activities at Creative Frontiers School and that she can begin a serious evaluation of it.

Adams, accused of molesting students at his private school over the course of years, has denied the allegations, which led to the closure of the school in July.

The property since has been put up for sale as Adams fights the criminal case and faces other legal challenges, including a lawsuit by a former student who claims to have been abused by Adams and a suit by an insurance company that says it should not have to pay any money to alleged victims because Adams was not truthful when he applied for the coverage.

Despite his woes, Adams still has supporters who accompany him and his family to each court hearing. This morning, dozens appeared with him and filled the courtroom inside the jail building to standing room only.
