MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man accused in a sexual abuse case is facing an additional charge for trying to buy a gun while out on release before trial.

Nodin Azure, of Belcourt, was originally charged in June after for having sex with a woman who was "incapable of appraising the nature of the conduct." He was released on a promise to appear for court proceedings.

The latest charge stems from an Aug. 1 incident when Azure allegedly tried to buy a gun from a Rolla hardware store. Authorities say Azure lied about the fact he was under indictment in the sexual abuse case.

Arraignment on the firearm charge is scheduled for Jan. 2 in Bismarck.
