At a pretrial hearing on Wednesday morning in Framingham District Court, the attorney for Hillers Pizza owner Petros “Peter” Sismanis was granted a postponement for discovery — meaning the defense is requesting to see evidence from the prosecution and have time to examine it.
Judge Jennifer Stark set a date of May 24 for the new hearing. Representation for Sismanis was provided by attorney Edward Krippendorf, a partner at Eisenstadt & Krippendorf Group.
On Jan. 31, Sismanis was charged with one count of indecent assault of a minor and two counts of witness intimidation following an alleged incident with a teenage female employee in the basement of the restaurant. Sismanis pleaded not guilty to all charges.
