Following a hearing Monday, a jury was picked Tuesday and the Eighth Judicial District Court trial of Bradley Curtis Kougher, 41, is on trial for one count of a January 1, 2010 Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child Under 6-years of age, a Felony 1; a June 1, 2009 Sexual Performance by a Child under 14-years of age, a Felony 1; a May 1, 2009 Indecency with a Child Sexual Contact, a Felony 2; and a July 1, 2009 Attempted Sexual Performance by a Child, a Felony 2.
During the hearing, the children involved in the incident and family members are being called as witnesses by District Attorney Will Ramsey. Although Kougher was living in Hopkins County at the time of the offenses, he was thought to be in Kentucky as Hopkins County law enforcement sought him for the Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child Under 6-years of age. Kentucky law enforcement had aided local officers. However, Kougher, along with his attorney, turned himself in at Hopkins County Jail in October, 2017.
The trial began at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
