A man indicted on several federal charges had his Wilson County court date continued until August.

Aderius Bingham, 22, of Lebanon, is charged with aggravated robbery, theft of property and several weapons- and drug-related charges in Wilson County.

Criminal Court Judge John Wootten Jr., on Monday continued Bingham’s case until Aug. 4.

A federal grand jury handed down a seven-count indictment in October that involved three suspects, charging them with aggravated robbery and other drug- and gun-related offenses. 

Bingham was indicted along with Terrance Shaw, 22, of Lebanon and Jalissa Brooks, 23, of Lebanon.

In the indictment, Shaw and Bingham were charged with one count of robbery in a June 11 home invasion in Lebanon at 411 E. Market St.

Lebanon police Chief Scott Bowen said Shaw and Bingham were accused of breaking into the home and robbing a family at gunpoint.

Another count charged Chaw and Bingham with possession of and brandishing a “short-barreled” shotgun during the commission of a robbery in the June 11 home invasion.

Shaw, Bingham and Brooks also were charged with a separate count of robbery for a June 22 incident. 

The three were also charged with another count for allegedly brandishing a firearm during the commission of the June 22 robbery, which happened at the Plaza 231 Inn on Cumberland Street in Lebanon.
