Published 9:22am Wednesday, June 4, 2014

The case involving a Tallassee husband and wife who are accused of sexual abuse of children over the period of a decade has been delayed according to court documents.

On Tuesday attorneys for Stephen Conrad Jr. and Brandy Jean Conrad filed to have their clients undergo mental evaluations.

The Conrads were scheduled on the docket to appear before Circuit Court Judge John Bush on Tuesday during one of their plea dates.

No date has been set for the evaluations, but it will certainly delay the start of their trial.

Stephen Conrad Jr. is facing four counts of sex abuse with a child less than 12 years old, three counts of first-degree rape, two counts of first-degree sodomy, two counts of first-degree sexual abuse, two counts of aggravated child abuse, one count of sexual torture and one count of incest.

Conrad’s wife faces two counts of sex abuse of a child less than 12 years old, two counts of first-degree sodomy, one count of first-degree rape, one count of incest and one count of sexual torture.

The Conrads’ next court date has not yet been set.
