Former HPD officer's rape trial postponed

Lamar County,  (WDAM) - The trial for a former Hattiesburg police officer accused of rape and sexual battery is postponed until next year.

Officials say a trial date for 38 year old Juan Gray will be set for March of 2011 in Lamar county Circuit Court. Gray waived his right to a first appearance today before Judge Billy Andrews. He was indicted on three counts of burglary, sexual battery, and rape for allegedly breaking into a woman's apartment in January and attacking her. Sources say Gray was a Hattiesburg police officer at the time of the alleged incident. Gray is free on 155,000 dollars bond.
