HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – An attorney for a Huntsville man asked the court on Wednesday to keep the defendant’s case clear of his twin brother’s situation in Colorado.
Richard Jensen, attorney for Brian Lucas, filed a motion Wednesday asking the court to limit and prohibit the state from presenting evidence related to allegations or convictions made against his identical twin brother, Aaron Lucas.
Aaron Lucas was convicted of sexual crimes in Colorado. The defense says the state and news media in north Alabama have labeled this the “evil twin rapist” case. The defense claims witnesses have stated their attitudes about both brothers and compared them during interviews.
“The defendant asks this court to issue an order limiting the witnesses from discussing or mentioning in any way A.L. and his arrest and conviction in Colorado.”
Brian Lucas is charged with three counts of sexual abuse and one count of attempted sodomy in Madison County.
