Re: Statutory Rape
On 03/18/2019 at 03:06 a.m. officers from the Graham Police Department responded to 740 Ivey Rd. in reference to an unknown problem. Once there an investigation was conducted. As a result of that investigation, it was determined that a sexual assault had occurred. Kenneth Ellis, 32 YOA, was identified as a suspect and was subsequently charged with Statutory rape of a child 15 years of age or younger. I have attached a photo of Mr. Ellis from when he was booked into the Alamance County Detention Center. After further investigation, another victim was identified in this case. This investigation yielded the following additional charges.
20 counts of statutory sex offense with a child 15 or under
20 counts of sex act by a substitute parent
21 counts of indecent liberties with a child
He was served with the above warrants and his bond was increased by $1.2 million.
