FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – The Madison County man accused of robbing several banks in Alabama and Tennessee appeared in court in Lauderdale County on Tuesday morning.
Cedric Lamond Hicks, the alleged “ball cap bandit,” pleaded not guilty.
Nathan Hunt is Hicks’ court-appointed attorney. Hicks fired his previous lawyer.
The judge scheduled Hicks to be on a June trial docket, approximately June 10. However, that date could be postponed if Hunt asks for more time to prepare.
Hicks remains in the Lauderdale County Detention Center on $350,000 bond. On his way back to jail, he said several people are supporting him.
“Everybody’s praying for me, and I’ll keep on praying for ya’ll and hope for a victory,” said Hicks before he got on the elevator with deputies.
Even if Hicks did make bond in Lauderdale County, four other police agencies have holds on him to answer possible charges in their cities. The include agencies in Cullman and Marion counties and Huntsville and Hamilton.
