After hearing testimony from two alleged victims on Monday, Roane County General Sessions Court Judge Jeff Wicks determined there was enough probable cause to move the criminal case against Matthew Brandon Hall to the next level.
“The cases will be bound over to the Roane County grand jury,” Wicks ruled.
Hall, 28, faces two counts of rape and one count of aggravated assault. The alleged victims are high school students.
Defense attorney Jedidiah C. McKeehan asked Wicks to dismiss the aggravated assault charge and one of the rape counts.
