Albany-Thrity-three year old Charles Luke, Jr. was indicted for rape, aggravated sodomy, and aggravated sexual battery. The trial is set to begin Tuesday.

"We expect the trail should last the majority of the week. I really can't comment on the evidence that we expect to be shown at this point in time, but we are confident in our case," says Assistant Dougherty County District Attorney Chris Cohilas.

The trial of a former Lee County teacher accused of distributing child pornography will also begin this week.

Thirty-seven year old Michael O'Keefe will appear in federal court Monday. O'Keefe was a math teacher at Lee County High School from August 2000 to July 2003.

He faces two federal charges of making, distributing, and selling child pornography on the internet. O'Keefe could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine of a half million dollars if found guilty.
