LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A trial date has been set for the man accused of a firearms violation and a brutal, violent sexual assault.
Back in March, the Sheriff's Departments in Hockley and Lubbock Counties accused Scotty Justice, 38, of a sexual assault on the county line. Court records later indicated Justice attacked a woman because she reported his ex-wife to Children's Protective Services.
In addition to state charges, federal prosecutors claim he illegally possessed a gun during the assault. So, now he faces a July 6th trial date on the federal charges.
Additionally, federal prosecutors revoked his supervised release on a previous conviction. That means even if Justice is not convicted on any of the new charges he will still have to spend four years in prison.
