SALINE COUNTY, Mo. – A rape case in Saline County has been moved to Circuit Court after a preliminary hearing last Wednesday.

The Associate Court found probable cause to transfer the case against Jesus Adrian Cervantes-Martinez, 28, to Division 4 for arraignment.

Cervantes-Martinez was charged with sodomy or attempted sodomy after his victim reported to police that a drink she was given caused her to black-out.

The incident allegedly occurred at Indian Foothills Park in December 2017.

When she woke up, she realized she had been sexually assaulted.

Cervantes-Martinez is slated to appear at 9:00 a.m. Monday.
