A two-day jury trial is set to begin Wednesday in a felony battery case against a Conway teen.
Kane Derrick Millsaps is charged as an adult with first-degree battery.
Millsaps was charged with first-degree battery, a Class B felony, and possession of an instrument of crime, a Class A misdemeanor, after authorities became aware of a video posted to YouTube showing Millsaps punching an unsuspecting 12-year-old boy while wearing brass knuckles last year.
Lauren Elenbaas, one of Millsaps’s attorneys, filed two motions on his behalf Friday. Millsaps is also represented by Frank Shaw.
The Shaw Firm requested Friday that Millsaps be able to wear civilian clothing during his trial.
His attorneys also filed a motion requesting the criminal history of each witness prosecutors plan to call to the stand.
The motion also requests information regarding the “history and status of all bargains, plea discussions, plea agreements, or anything of a like nature that the Prosecuting Attorney, or anyone in his office, has had with any witnesses, informants, or others.”
As of press time Saturday, prosecutors had not yet responded to the defense’s motions.
A two-day jury trial in Millsaps’s case is set to begin at 9 a.m. Wednesday in Faulkner County Circuit Court.
First-degree battery is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors are also seeking a 10-year enhancement sentence that would run consecutively with the 20-year sentence, for a potential 30-year sentence.
