Cory T. Henderson, 126 Patterson St., Batesville, entered a not guilty plea to simple assault against Tiffany Wilkins during Batesville Municipal Court held Wednesday.

“Are you ready to go to trial today?” Judge Jay Westfaul asked the defendant and affiant.
Both agreed they were ready for trial.

Wilkins told the judge she was at American Legion Park on October 29  when Henderson threw her down and pulled her hair.

Henderson told the judge he was walking and knew Wilkins because he dated her sister so he was going to ask her for a ride.

The judge told both the defendant and affiant to stay away from each other.

He remanded the case to the files saying, “This is like a restraining order. If anything else happens the charges can be brought back up,” he ruled.
