Abduction  trial  postponed  By CMondo Moultile  The Herald-Zeitung  A second woman is expected to plead guilty next month after being indicted in connection with the alleged February 2010 abduction and sexual assault oi two S[)ring Branch sisters, according to the Comal County website.  Sara Theresa Nadeau was scheduled for a jury trial Monday, the website read last week. But that date was reset and the website now reads that she is scheduled to enter a guilty plea Sept.  12 on charges of aggravated kidnapping. Nadeau, ,37, is accused of taking the girls to California. The girls 16 and 15 years old at the time — were found weeks later and said they had been abused, according to published reports.  Nadeau's co-defendant in the case recently pleaded guilty. Desire'e Hamm, 23, of San Diego, agreed to a deal that sent her to state )rison to starve 20 years fol-owed by 10 years probation. Hamm pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual performance by a child, two counts of aRRravated kid  napping and sc^ven counts of sexual assault. An unlawful restraint of a minor charge was dismissed.  Investigators believe the whole thing started with online role-playing games that had a supernatural or shamanistic theme, and that the gaming and chatting escalcited to thousands of minutes of phone calls before culminating in the alleged kidnapping, according to publishc’d reports.
