QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) - A judge has ruled against dismissing child sex abuse charges filed against a former youth camp counselor in New York.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports the judge's ruling Thursday means the trial for 51-year-old Dylan Stolz will take place in December or early January.

Stolz is accused of sexually abusing nine boys at Brant Lake Camp in Brant Lake in Warren County between 2015 and 2018.

He was arrested in July and charged with felony sexual abuse and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child. He has pleaded not guilty.

His attorney argued the case should be dismissed due to insufficient evidence. The judge said in his ruling prosecutors met their "initial burden" under the law.

Stolz is currently free on bail.

Camp officials have not responded to a request for comment.
