Chattanooga teenager indicted on child rape charges

Posted: Updated:
HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) -

A Hamilton County grand jury has indicted a local teenager on three counts of child rape.

John Allan Raper, 19, of 5236 Dorsey St., was indicted Aug. 28. On Friday, two weeks after the indictment, Raper was booked into the Hamilton County Jail, and he left after posting a $10,000 bond later that day.

According to the indictment, Raper had sex several times with a girl between 3 and 13 years old.

Officers brought Raper to the jail only after he was arrested in Fort Oglethorpe on a different charge. On the evening of Sept. 10, officer Greg Cross said he saw Raper and two other teenagers riding their bikes in the dark on Cross Street.
