Trial Date Changed For Pocomoke Rape Case

SNOW HILL— The trial for a man charged with raping a Pocomoke City woman has been postponed for a week.

Originally scheduled for Feb. 2, the trial now will be held Feb. 9 and 10, as the office of the state’s attorney and defense council determined that two days were neccessary to try the case. A conflict in schedule for the judges prevented the case from going to trial this week.

Sherrick Martell Handy, of Horntown, was charged for allegedly forcing his way into the apartment of a former girlfriend in the early hours of June 28. He is charged with rape and assault in the first- and second-degree, first-and third-degree burglary and false imprisonment.

What a horrible thing to have to wait longer for the victim!

Does it matter what this does to the victim?
