At least one of two young men accused of kidnapping and raping a classmate will appear before a jury next month.

The trial of Edgar Chicas-Hernandez is scheduled for Feb. 25 to 28 in Frederick County Circuit Court.

Chicas-Hernandez, 18, is charged with kidnapping, first-degree rape and first-degree sex offense. He has not accepted plea agreement offers, Frederick County Assistant State's Attorney Lindell K. Angel told the court Monday.

Chicas-Hernandez was arrested in September 2017 along with Victor Antonio Gonzales-Guttierres. The Frederick Police Department accused the two young men of abducting and raping a female classmate. 

The classmate made the allegation to the Frederick Police Department and said that a third, unidentified youth was involved. 

Circuit Judge Theresa M. Adams denied motions to have Chicas-Hernandez, who was 17 at the time of the alleged crime, tried as an adult.

Gonzales-Guttierres, 20, has not accepted a plea agreement either. His trial is scheduled for March.

Maybe Chicas Hernandez and Roxana Orellana Santos should hook-up. Could be love at first site plus comparing their criminal history together [beam]


CD that`s an interesting fact about Zak Starkey was`t aware of it but something I am aware of CD my comments vanished not only here also in other stories. I play FNP rules usually and the previous ones were legit. I`m thinking one or more of our fencing with commutators has turned into that Demo snitch Bob Woodard giving a lame excuse to take my post down because Pappy hurt their little feelings or something of the other[beam]

And pappy, I always found it interesting that Keith was the one to teach Ringo Starr's son, Zak Starkey, the drums instead of Ringo. And Zak has been the premier drummer for The Who since '96.

Hernandes / Guttierres that`s a couple of solid American names and of all Judges they could have stood before they got Theresa Adams. If these guys stand before her at trial that mallet of Judge Adams is going to sound like a Keith Moon solo[beam]


Good one pappy, and I like your comparison. I always felt Keith was the all time best drummer ever. I was fortunate enough to see him on their '76 tour and even though he was sick as a dog, he still played great. What a loss for rock 'n roll was his death.
