Memphis attorney back in court amid rape, assault charges

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Attorney Art Horne is in court, charged with aggravated rape and aggravated assault after accusations that came after he got into an argument with his then-girlfriend.

Horne's ex-girlfriend told police he strangled her, punched her, and forced himself on top of her.

This isn't the first time Horne has been at the center of a domestic violence case.

In November 2015, his on-and-off girlfriend, Sherrie Miller-Daly, was charged with assault and burglary when she allegedly smashed out a door with a golf club at his home.

Horne is out of jail on a $75,000 bond and has been ordered to wear a GPS monitor.
