SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Raynard Lexie, the man convicted and sentenced for his involvement  in the September 2012 home invasion and assault of two SCAD students, has been given a new trial date.

Judge Walmsley signed the order for a new trial on March 25, and Lexie is due in court for his arraignment  on May 25.

Lexie and another man approached one of the students outside of her residence on Waldburg Street, forced her inside and sexually assaulted her. The woman's roommate then arrived at the residence and was pushed down the stairs, breaking her leg.
