Bradley David Moles will be going to trial after pleading not guilty Thursday to 13 sex crimes.

An April 7, 2016, grand jury indictment accuses the Mt. Vernon resident of 13 felony charges for incidents with a single victim between Feb. 1, 2016, and April 1, 2016. The indictment includes three counts of first-degree rape, three counts of first-degree sexual penetration, three counts of second-degree sodomy and one count of incest.

After retaining attorney Foster Glass in place of his former court-appointed counsel, Moles pleaded not guilty to all of the charges in Grant County Circuit Court Thursday.

Judge William D. Cramer Jr. said all pretrial motions must be filed by May 26.

Grant County District Attorney Jim Carpenter said the state was prepared to call eight witnesses at trial and expected the state’s case to take three days.

Glass said he expected the trial to last at least six days.

Cramer scheduled a six-day trial to begin at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 28, and to continue through the following week. Cramer said he would preside over the pretrial motions, but another judge would be assigned to preside over the trial because of the dates. He said he was currently unaware which judge would be assigned.

Moles is scheduled to appear again in court for a status hearing at 10:15 a.m. June 22.
