A May 21 trial date has been set for Terry Glover, who is accused of participating in the beating of two women because they are lesbians.
Glover faces two counts of felony hate crimes, as well as two counts each of robbery and assault, after allegedly participating in the beatings, which took place in the Austin neighborhood.
Glover pled not guilty to the charges, and has been in jail, where he is being held on a $1 million bond, since July. He is accused of beating and robbing the women while he yelled anti-gay slurs July 7. The incident occured on the 0-100 block of North Leclaire Avenue.
The victims have not wished to make their identities known in the media. One told Chicago Tribune in July that the harassment began after they passed Glover a few times on the street. He allegedly started following them, all the while yelling slurs, and was then joined by about nine accomplices. The victims ended up pinned to the side of a car. One woman had her shirt ripped off and both lost their shoes, phones and cash.
