BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Trial has been scheduled for a Bismarck addiction counselor who’s accused of hindering police in a methadone patient’s arrest.

Kiki Schatz faces a misdemeanor charge after refusing to allow police entry into a private opioid treatment clinic in June. Officers were trying to arrest a man for allegedly violating a protection order.

Schatz maintained that she’s obligated under federal law to protect patients’ confidentiality rights.

The Bismarck Tribune reports a jury trial has been scheduled for Oct. 17 in state district court.
