The attorney for Rev. Raymond Lambert and his wife Patricia hope to move their trials on felony sex charges out of McDonald County.
Robert Evenson filed motions for change of venue in both cases Dec. 7, according to court records.
The Lamberts were bound over for trial following Nov. 27 preliminary hearings.
Lambert is charged with four counts of child molestation and three counts of statutory sodomy, while Mrs. Lambert is charged with one count of child molestation. The crimes were allegedly committed as part of church rituals.
