OXFORD – David V. Broyles faces a July 25 trial date on federal charges he robbed an Aberdeen bank.
Chief U.S. District Judge Michael P. Mills set the date Friday after the recent receipt of a court-ordered psychiatric report on the defendant.
Broyles, 36, of Prairie was indicted in March 25, 2010 on two counts that he robbed the Cadence Bank on Highway 145 North in Aberdeen six days earlier, and allegedly did so with a firearm, a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol.
If found guilty on both counts, he faces up to life in prison and a $500,000 fine.
During a court hearing Jan. 19, Broyles rejected changing his not-guilty plea. A competence hearing was held before Mills two days later.
Soon after, prosecutors asked the court to order a psychological exam, expressing concerns about his mental competence.
The July 25 trial date is the sixth set since Broyles’ indictment. It’s scheduled to begin at 9:40 a.m. in Oxford.
