Senate impeachment trial: Opening arguments begin

Case against Whitehaven man accused of trying to rape 14-year-old dismissed

Eric Brooks

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The case against a Memphis man who was arrested after he allegedly tried to rape a 14-year-old who was out walking her dog in Whitehaven has been dismissed.

According to court records, Eric Brooks appeared in court on November 15 for a preliminary hearing at which time he was released.

Brooks was arrested in early October after a teenager claimed he offered her $50 if she would have sex with him in the area of East Holmes and Tulane Road. She continued by saying he then pulled down her pants.

Brooks was initially charged with sexual battery, attempted aggravated statutory rape, indecent exposure and solicitation of a minor.

It’s unclear why the charges were dismissed.
