Two Shelbyville men charged with sex crimes saw their cases advanced through the court system on Friday.


Jessie Allen Stump, 61, of 110 Ada Ave., indicted last summer with multiple counts of sexual-related offenses against two female children who are related to him, will face those charges in a jury trial on March 18 in Shelby County Circuit Court.

Stump was indicted in July 2012 on two counts each of first-degree rape and incest of two children for which he was babysitting.

The offenses occurred in September 2003 and April 2012 in Shelby County.

Kentucky State Police Detective Ben Wolcott said Stump has a history of the same type of sexual offenses, dating back to 1987 in Jefferson County.


Hamilton gets date for status hearing

Nils Hamilton, 24, of 102 Hazel Lawn Ave., who was arrested May 31 at 722 Brown Ave. and charged with two counts of first-degree sodomy of a physically helpless adult who is incapable of giving consent to sexual activity, will have a status hearing on April 1.

Police said Hamilton committed the offenses while acting as a caregiver for the victims in July 2011 in Shelby County.
