Earl has been jailed without bond since his October 2017 arrest in the case.

He was accused of sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman and a 21-year-old woman in separate incidents less than a month apart when they were hired by Earl to babysit his two young daughters.

Authorities say the women didn't know each other and came forward with their allegations at different times.
