LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A man in Lawrence County accused of rape has waived his preliminary hearing.

The case against Dylan Mark Sutton, 19, of Town Creek, will likely be presented to a grand jury later this year, according to our news partners at the Times Daily.

Reports indicated the victim stated that Sutton had gotten drunk while out with friends.

Investigators were then told by the victim that Sutton had raped her after taking him to her house to let him "sleep it off".

Sutton, who was arrested in April, has denied the accusations. He has since been released from jail on $50,000 bail.
