When Brian Keith Medley complained that his case has been pending since late 2018, he immediately had a trial date set. However, when he informed the court he wanted another attorney, his request was denied.

Medley, 52, who provided authorities with a Ponder Rd., Bon Aqua, address when arrested, is charged with sexual battery and domestic assault occurring on Dec. 5, 2018. Medley was indicted in June 2019.

The charges stem from a domestic dispute incident investigated by Crossville Police.

When Medley complained about the length of his incarceration, Assistant District Attorney Amanda Worley told Judge Gary McKenzie that most of the delays have been of Medley’s own doing. He has failed to show up for court.

When McKenzie set a motion hearing date of Dec. 6 and trial date of Jan. 27, Medley responded, “I want another attorney.” He is represented by Crossville Attorney Jeff Vires.

“You are not helping yourself,” McKenzie told Medley. He then instructed corrections officers to remove Medley from the courtroom after the defendant refused to talk to his attorney.

As for now, the trial date stands and Vires is still Medley’s attorney.
