COPY-Man accused of sexual abuse; Judge considers bond request

A Madison County judge is considering a bond request for a man accused of sexually abusing two teenagers. Brian Lucas is in the Huntsville Madison County Metro Jail without bond.

Investigators say Lucas sexually abused an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old. According to prosecutors, the second crime happened eight days after Lucas bonded out of jail following his first arrest.

Lucas' father told the judge his son would not be a threat to the community. A family friend testified that he would not be a flight risk.

Lucas also asked the judge to try each case separately.

The judge will rule later on each request.

Brian Lucas' brother Aaron Lucas is serving 20 years in a Colorado prison for sex crimes.
