Judge to decide Monday if Black Rapist trial can move

PEORIA —

A judge on Monday will decide whether a Peoria man charged with rape will be able to stand trial in another county.

Kevin Lowe, an attorney representing Monterius Hinkle, said Thursday he believed his client wouldn’t be able to receive a fair trial based on the publicity of his arrest and subsequent appearances in court.

Hinkle, 21, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 26 years in prison in November for raping a 16-year-old girl after he grabbed her and dragged her through an alley, a yard and into his home in the 2800 block of West Malone Street in broad daylight.

While that case is now being appealed, Hinkle faces two other pending rape cases – one of which Lowe said he is attempting to have moved.

Hinkle’s cases also became a political football in last year’s campaign for the office of Peoria County state’s attorney.

Hinkle faces a combined 60 years in prison if convicted in the two cases, which involve alleged assaults in August and June 2007.
