Jacob Blake bound over for trial on charges unrelated to Kenosha police shooting

KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- For the first time since he was shot by police in Kenosha, we got to see Jacob Blake on Friday, Sept. 4.

Blake appeared virtually at a court hearing for charges from an earlier incident unrelated to the shooting. 

Blake answered questions from a bed with his attorney sitting next to him. He waived his preliminary hearing and was bound over for trial on a felony charge of third degree sexual assault, and misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and criminal trespass. 

An arrest warrant was out for Blake at the time of the confrontation that led to his shooting on Aug. 23. 

Friday's hearing, not guilty pleas were entered for the charges.
