MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A 63-year-old man is behind bars accused of raping his live in girlfriend’s child.
According to police documents, the mother of the 14-year-old girl reported the crime against her daughter at the end of January.
She told investigators she noticed that her daughter was constantly getting sick, causing the mother to become worried that she might be pregnant.
A pregnancy test turned out positive.
That’s when the teen told her the woman’s live in boyfriend had been raping her since the 4th grade.
At that time she was 9-years-old.
The last encounter was reportedly back in December 2015.
A warrant for Thomas’ arrest was issued on June 24 and he was arrested on July 1.
Thomas was charged with rape and given a $100,000 bond.
