A trial date for a Greencastle man facing six Class A felony charges of child molestation was set Thursday in Putnam County Circuit Court.
Terrell L. Britton, 52, will be in court March 28 should he and his court-appointed attorney, James Recker, decide to take the matter to trial. Judge Matthew Headley set Britton's final pretrial conference for Feb. 26.
In addition to the six Class A felonies, Britton is also charged with two counts of Class B felony criminal sexual conduct with a minor, two class D felony counts of child solicitation, Class D felony dissemination of matter harmful to a minor, Class D felony performing sexual conduct in the presence of a minor and Class A misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.
An investigation into Britton's possible criminal activity began on May 15, court records said.
Britton's alleged victims are several minors, both males and females. He is accused of several deviant acts, including performing and receiving oral sex, watching sex acts between the victims take place, showing pornographic movies to minors, intercourse with minors.
One of the victims said he had engaged in sexual encounters with Britton "on more occasions than he can remember," court records said. The acts are alleged to have occurred between November 2007 and May 2008.
Britton was arrested in June. His bond was set at $100,000 cash only, and he has been in jail since his arrest.
At his initial hearing, Britton pled not guilty to all charges.
Class A felonies are punishable by up to 50 years in prison; Class B felonies carry a 20-year maximum; and Class D felonies are punishable by up to three years.
Britton has no prior criminal history in Putnam County.
