UPDATE: A Murfreesboro man known for his positive involvement with soldiers has seen a change in his plea date to Monday, August 21st instead of August 11th as originally scheduled.
Malcolm Daniel Stallard was apprehended after a sealed indictment was handed down by the Rutherford County Grand Jury in November of 2016. On August 11th, he was scheduled to file a plea to multiple counts of Rape, Sexual Battery and one count of Extortion, according to the Circuit Courts. However, the courts later confirmed that the plea date has been moved to August 21, 2017.
Stallard is the founder of nonprofit "Operation Adopt a Hero." The organization helps to bridge the gap between veterans and the community. Stallard was arrested one day before their annual "For the Hero's 5K" last year.
Stallard was accused of raping a woman who was court ordered to complete community service hours. The woman told Murfreesboro Police she contacted Stallard about volunteering with Operation Adopt a Hero. The woman claims the rape occurred when she met with Stallard at his office.
The 26-year-old was charged with eight counts of rape, two counts of sexual battery and one count of extortion. Again, the plea date has been moved to Monday, August 21, 2017 in the courtroom of Judge David Bragg.
