Rawlins's rape trial moved to allow for lawyers to prepare for the case

The defense lawyers say they just received around 500 pages of discovery on the new rape charge that Rawlins was indicted on a couple of weeks ago by an Allen County Grand Jury. They are also looking at hiring a d-n-a expert as part of their investigation. Rawlins was arrested in May on one count of rape after a victim says that she was spending time with Rawlins in his home when he allegedly forced himself on her. The most recent indictment says that the alleged incident happened in September of 2020. No trial date has been set, but Rawlins will have another hearing next month.
