A 34-year-old Gore man may go to trial next month on numerous first-degree rape and lewd molestation charges. Troy L. Sands is charged with the rape and molestation of two sisters who were ages six and seven at the time, between 2008 and 2010. The charges were filed in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw on June 12, 2014, and Sands was arrested the same day. He was arrested after the girls' mother found out about the allegations and reported them to Muldrow police. Sands entered a not guilty plea on Oct. 4.
His case is now on District Judge Jeff Payton's jury trial sounding docket Sept. 24, when a new jury trial docket is set to begin, and when it will be determined if the case is ready to go to trial.
