An attorney has requested more time to review evidence in the case of Raymond Cox, who is accused of three counts of first-degree sexual abuse and more than 600 counts of possession of material portraying sex acts by a minor.
Ben Fletcher, Cox’s attorney, told Christian Circuit Judge Andrew Self that the prosecution has shared all of its evidence with him, but he needs time to review it. Self agreed to continue the case on Dec. 5.
Police claim that between September 2010 and August 2011, Cox committed sexual acts with a teenager. Cox was arrested in early April for sexual abuse.
Erick Hernandez, a detective with the Oak Grove Police Department, said Cox’s actions didn’t involve intercourse. First-degree sexual abuse is a Class D felony, punishable by one to five years in prison.
Cox had 633 charges added when police allegedly found illegal pictures and videos on his computer. Each charge is a Class D felony.
Cox appeared in court in a green button-down shirt and glasses. He left court on his own following the hearing.
