Knoxville (WVLT) - A West Tennessee youth minister and track coach, charged with raping a teenager, is in a Knox County courtroom.
Forty-four-year-old Timothy Byars of Dyersburg pleaded not guilty to the charges against him late last year.
Byars was arrested November 18th after a Dyersburg student told her parents he had raped her.
Authorities say Byars brought his two teenage daughters, the 14-year-old victim and the victim's older sister from to Knoxville to compete in the Amateur Athletic Union Southeast Cross Country Championships.
