Two men charged with child sex crimes to go to trial this March
Two men charged with sex crimes against children are expected to go to trial in March.
Paul Dykes, 21, was on Dec. 6 found guilty of 24 child-sex-crime felonies and faces an additional dozen related charges that have been separated out for a second trial — even though he faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison for the first slew of convictions.
Dykes was arrested when he was 18 alongside co-defendent Erin Vickers, now 23, who was at the time 20. Vickers was convicted in September of capital sexual battery and promoting sexual performance by a child.
Bryan Loveland, 38, faces charges of raping and molesting a 12-year-old girl.
He is scheduled for a pretrial on Jan. 13. His case is expected to go to trial in March.
