A Vandalia man charged with multiple counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13 made an appearance in Fayette County Court on Tuesday. 27-year old Matthew Crawford of Vandalia appeared for a pre-trial hearing. Prior to the hearing, defense attorney David Grigsby had filed an amended motion to suppress statements that will need to be argued. A motion hearing date for those arguments has been scheduled for July 18 at 1pm with the scheduled trial date of July 24 still in place. Crawford was charged with the three counts in December 2015, all of which are Class X felonies and punishable by 6 to 30 years in prison.
