Several criminal hearings that involve violent crimes are coming up in March in Wilson County, starting with criminal hearings for Timothy Lorenzo Wade and Marvin Andre Byrant, who were charged in the 2015 shooting death of 13-year-old C’Asia Patton.

Patton died in January 2015 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center a few days after she received a single gunshot wound while sleeping during a drive-by shooting incident while at her grandmother’s home in Lebanon.

A trial date for Wade and Patton is yet to be set.

The following notable cases are also scheduled for March.

• Antonio Aburto Martinez, charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, is scheduled to appear in court March 12.

• Julius Cortez Baskerville, charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child, is scheduled to appear in court March 12. He is currently in Wilson County Jail on $30,000 bond.

• Larry Lee Holmes, charged with two counts of aggravated rape, two counts of aggravated assault and especially aggravated kidnapping, is scheduled to appear in court March 12. Holmes previously had his trial scheduled for Sept. 6, 2017, Nov. 15, 2017 and March 7, but all were rescheduled.

• Antonio Banks, charged with four counts of failure to pay child support, failure to appear, two counts of violation of parole, assault and aggravated sexual battery of a child less than 13 years old, is scheduled to appear March 12. Banks’ trial regarding the aggravated sexual battery of a child charge was previously scheduled to begin March 1, but it was rescheduled.

• Joseph Durham, charged with statutory aggravated rape, 10 counts of statutory rape by an authority figure, 20 counts of incest and 11 counts of rape of a child less than 13 years old, is scheduled to appear March 12. According to sheriff’s office officials, the mother of the alleged victims reported the allegations of sex abuse in April.

• Ronald Harris, charged with four counts of rape, sexual battery by an authority figure and four counts of incest, is scheduled to appear March 12.

• Mother and son, Kimberly Scott and Lance Rippy, charged with premeditated first-degree murder, are scheduled to appear March 12. Scott and Rippy were charged with killing Vincent Edward Clemmons, who was shot in March 2017 at a home near Old Hickory.

Wilson County sheriff’s detectives worked with Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents on the case due to a language barrier with some of the people involved.
