A sergeant in the U.S. Army Cadet Command 1st Brigade accused of raping a female relative appeared Tuesday in Hardin Circuit Court.
Robert McIntosh, an attorney for Sgt. 1st Class Felix Manuel Ayala of Radcliff, made a motion for a speedy trial in his client’s case. He requested the trial date, June 16, be moved up because his client has been in custody for more than nine months.
The motion was denied because Judge Ken Howard said June 16 is the first available date, but the case would be given “first priority” on that date.
