Kentucky man accused of child rape admits to previous sexual assault

National

(CNN) — A man in Kentucky who admitted to sexually assaulting a young girl appeared in court on Monday.

Cane Madden admitted to sexually assaulting an 8-year-old, hitting her over the head with a shovel and stealing her iPad.

The judge called madden a danger to the community and entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Madden has a long criminal history, but most charges have been dismissed.

He’s had nine cases against him, and eight were dismissed because of his incompetence, including a 2017 sexual assault in which he admitted to police he bit the victim and removed a large chunk of her face.

He also told detectives he would kill the woman and she would “end up in a body bag.”

But earlier this year, a judge found madden incompetent to stand trial and as a result, those charges were dismissed.

Today, a public defender asked for the judge to dismiss Madden’s most recent charges.

Madden will remain behind bars on a one million dollar bail.

He is due back in court later this month.
