2008 Rape Kit Found, Man Faces Several Sex-Related Charges

The rape kit allegedly ties a 46-year-old man to the crimes. After the rape kit was found, the case was reopened. Investigators spoke with the alleged victim again. She told police officers that the man raped her at least 20 times before she turned 14 and four more times after she had turned 14. She described the man as a family friend.

The last sexual contact between the man and teen allegedly occurred in July of 2008 when the girl's mother found the man and her daughter in bed together. The mother had come home from work early that day.

The man is facing several criminal charges. He has been charged with two counts of third-degree felony unlawful sexual activity with a minor and two counts of first-degree felony rape of a child. An arrest warrant was issued and he was recently arrested on that warrant.

This man now begins a battle in the criminal justice system. The four charges he faces are very serious charges that can impact his entire life.

Any defendant who is facing sex-related charges should make sure he or she understands the severity of those charges. Knowing the possible penalties of a conviction and learning about the options available can help defendants decide how to handle a defense.
