BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A 19-year-old man accused of filming the rape of a girl in Siloam Springs will be tried as an adult.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1hgXnq5 ) reports Joseph Andrew Wall is charged with computer exploitation of a child. Wall was 17 at the time of the incident. His attorney, Kathryn Moore, had filed a motion to transfer the case to juvenile court and a hearing was set for Wednesday, but Moore withdrew the motion.

According to prosecutors, Wall filmed a child in a sex act in September 2013 at a Siloam Springs home.

Wall’s next court appearance has been scheduled for Nov. 3.
