Madison Teen Faces Rape Charge
A teenager faces rape charges after police say she had sex with a child. 18-year-old Alora Jones surrendered to deputies at the sheriff's department Wednesday. She made her first court appearance Thursday morning at the Madison County courthouse in Marshall. The 18-year-old female is charged with two counts of first-degree rape and two counts of taking indecent liberties with a child under ten years old. Deputies say the first-degree rape charge means she had intercourse with the child. They say she was taking care of the child at the time, primarily as a babysitter. The judge set Alora Jones bond at $275,000 secured and $750,000 unsecured.
