ADA — Anthony Bekinnie, 44, Ada, faced Judge Tom Landrith in court Thursday on a felony charge of first degree rape in connection with a 13-year-old girl. Landrith set the next appearance date for May 17 at 1 p.m. with a May 11 cutoff for a plea change.

According to the affidavit of probable cause filed by Ada Police Officer Tracy Jackson in November 2005, the alleged victim had a baby in September 2005 and DNA testing of samples was performed by OSBI to determine if Bekinnie was the father of the baby. Bekinnie has been held without bail in the county jail since Nov. 21, 2005.
