"but what of Bob Ross ? did they set a court date or did the case fall apart?"

They didn't say. The first article, which is ONLY a summary of what the news media reports, stated that Ross is still out on bail--in other words, the author cannot find any news articles on him.

It might be that the courts want to wait to make sure that the volunteer youth worker in Ross's church actually does get convicted. Since he did get convicted, Ross's case might finally go to court.

LAST YEAR, on August 24, 2018 a public school teacher's aide in Mesquite, Texas (where Bob Ross's church is located) was sentenced to 60 years without parole for sexually abusing a 6 year old boy.

The woman had been arrested in August 2016, two years earlier. I cannot find a specific reason for the two-year delay, but one report stated that investigators wanted to have psychologists observe the boy's behavior, and that would have taken time. This might explain the delay with Bob Ross's case.
