The trial date for a Radcliff man accused of attempted sexual abuse first-degree has been set for Aug. 21 in LaRue District Court.

Thaddeus J. Artis, 27, also known as “T-Dog,” is accused of attempting to fondle a 12-year-old girl in March. The alleged victim resisted by “grabbing his finger and pulling it back with force,” according to court records.

Kentucky State Police served the warrant at Artis’ residence in April. Bond was set at $1,000 cash and he was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim and to abstain from use or possession of alcohol or drugs.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge.

A public defender was appointed to Artis’ case.
