TUSCUMBIA-The criminal trial for the 32 year old former youth minister at Woodward Avenue Baptist Church in Muscle Shoals is set to begin Monday morning in Judge Hal V. Hughston’s courtroom. Charles Kyle Adcock is accused of having sexual relations with an underage female who attended  the church.

Adcock’s family has retained high-priced Birmingham attorney Bill Clark, a past president of the Alabama State Bar and West Point graduate, to represent the former youth minister.

Adcock’s bond was revoked in September,  for working as a pastor at First Baptist Church in Bedford, Texas.

Adcock, who was initially arrested in August of 2014 on multiple rape and sodomy charges, worked at Woodward Avenue Baptist church between 2008 and 2012, when the victim was 14 years old. She is now 20.

From the motion hearings held on Wednesday in Judge Hughston’s courtroom, it is obvious Colbert County District Attorney Bryce Graham’s office has been preparing for this case for months. Assistant DA Angela Hulsey, who has volumes of electronic text communications between the accused and the victim, already had expert witnesses lined up for the case. It is common knowledge that Graham’s office has an excellent record prosecuting sex crimes.

In 1978, Adcock’s attorney Bill Clark wrote Plea Bargaining: A Primer for Defense Council.  Some say it may be time to dust off those old books.
