MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – The trial by jury for Brian Lucas, a man charged with sex abuse and sodomy, began Tuesday in Huntsville.

Lucas is charged with three counts of sexual abuse and one count of attempted sodomy.

Brian Lucas’ identical twin brother, Aaron Lucas, pleaded guilty to similar charges in Colorado. He is currently serving 20 years to life for multiple child sex abuse charges. Last week, Brian Lucas’ attorneys asked the court to limit and prohibit the state from presenting evidence related to allegations or convictions made against Aaron Lucas.
