Hearing scheduled for alleged attacker

GREENVILLE — A hearing is scheduled in state district court this week for a local man, who allegedly sexually assaulted a Greenville teenager who later was found murdered.

A pretrial hearing is set Tuesday morning for Terry Dwayne Ramsire.

Ramsire, 49, received two indictments from the Hunt County grand jury in September; one for aggravated sexual assault of a child and another for indecency with a child by sexual contact, alleging he sexually assaulted Alicia Chanta Moore on multiple occasions in July of this year.

The former is a first degree felony, carrying a maximum sentence upon conviction of up to life in prison and the latter charge is a second degree felony which carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

Ramsire was arrested on the charges on August 23 and has remained in custody at the Hunt County Jail since that time.

Ramsire was arraigned and pleaded not guilty to both indictments Sept. 27 during a hearing in the 354th District Court.

Ramsire is currently set for trial on the counts on Jan. 14, 2013.

Ramsire’s defense attorney has filed multiple motions with the court; including seeking a list of the prosecution’s witnesses, any exculpatory or mitigating evidence, as well as any evidence favorable to the accused.

Moore, 16, was last seen on the afternoon of Nov. 2 getting off of a school bus at the intersection of Bourland and Walnut Streets in Greenville, a short distance from her home.

Her body was found Nov. 6 along Farm-to-Market Road 47 in Van Zandt County and the Greenville Police Department has joined with multiple other agencies in conducting a homicide investigation in the case.
