After years of delays, two former Texas Youth Commission Administrators are finally headed to court.

The Odessa judge appointed to take over the case against John Paul Hernandez and Ray Brookins says the pair will go to court in Ward County on July 23rd.

Brookins and Hernandez are both former administrators at TYC's West Texas State School in Pyote.

They were indicted in 2007 on charges of sexually abusing teenage inmates.

The case has since been stalled in the court.

Brookins and Hernandez have both denied wrongdoing and have pleaded not guilty.
