LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Attorneys selected a jury Monday for a Lufkin man accused of inappropriately touching a young girl. The trial is scheduled to begin Aug. 1.

Justin Delaney Nash, 33, is charged with indecency with a child.

Lufkin Police arrested Nash in October after a teacher found a second-grade student's journal entry, in which she wrote, "I wish I had another life. I got raped by Justin, and I'm scared to tell my mom."

Nash has been in the Angelina County Jail since his arrest, under a hold from the Angelina County Probation Department, as he is serving probation on a 2010 conviction for injury to a child.

Attorneys also selected a jury for the trial of a Lufkin man accused of stabbing two men.

Lufkin Police arrested Gerald Acevedo, 25, on two counts of aggravated assault in April 2011.

According to the police report, officers were dispatched to a residence on the 200 block of Garvan Street. When they arrived, they learned Acevedo had been in a fight with two men who he stabbed, according to the report. After he stabbed them, the two victims fled into the house and Acevedo scraped their car with the knife, according to the report.

The two victims, aged 24 and 21, were taken to a Lufkin hospital, where they were treated for injuries.

According to the report, Acevedo first stabbed the 24-year-old. While attempting to break up the fight, the 21-year-old was also stabbed.

The trial will begin Wednesday.
