    BARRE ó The Barre man accused of repeatedly raping a young female relative and making an agreement with the girlís mother to get the girl out of the country has agreed to a prosecutorís motion that his trial be delayed until January.

    Maggie Vincent, the attorney representing Reco A. Jones, 52, filed paperwork in Washington County criminal court Thursday stating that Jones has no problem postponing the trial originally scheduled for December. Jones also withdrew his motion to be permitted to have contact with the girlís mother.

    Deputy Stateís Attorney Megan Campbell asked Judge Thomas Zonay for more time on the case Monday because, among other reasons, her office had just received 46 letters written to the alleged victimís mother and CDs of more than 250 phone calls between Jones and the mother.

    Jones is court ordered not to have contact with the mother and was arraigned Monday on six counts of violating his conditions of release.
