Lambert and his wife, Patricia, are charged in connection with alleged ritual sex involving children.
Evenson filed the motion Thursday.
Raymond Lambert is charged with four counts of child molestation and four counts of statutory sodomy in connection with what authorities describe as ritual sex acts with children.
Mrs. Lambert faces one charge of statutory sodomy.
