A Junction City man has been indicted by a Boyle County grand jury for allegedly raping a teenager.
Jacob Turner, 22, was indicted on counts of first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy for allegedly using forcible compulsion to engage a 17-year-old girl in sexual intercourse and deviant sexual intercourse on Aug. 4.
Police initially also charged Turner with unlawful imprisonment and unlawful transaction with a minor but he was not indicted on those charges.
According to Kentucky State Police, the victim is a friend of Turner’s former girlfriend and he allegedly got her drunk and assaulted her. The victim went to Trooper Rodney Wren’s home in Junction City shortly after the incident and was advised to go to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, where a sexual assault kit was processed, police said.
