Attorney Brandon C. Waltrip has been appointed to represent a local man on charges of rape of a child under thirteen years of age; indecent liberties with a child; and assault and battery of an infant. Mr. Waltrip was appointed to represent the defendant on December 21, 2012. The defendant was denied bond by the Court, which was appealed to the Wililamsburg James-City County Circuit Court. At the bond appeal, Mr. Waltrip argued that the defendant would plead not guilty to the charges.
Circuit Court Judge McGinty denied bond and the matter was remanded to the Williamsburg Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court for pre-liminary hearing. The pre-liminary hearing is scheduled for January 25, 2013 at 10:00 AM.
