Jefferson City man charged with rape

January 15th, 2019 in Local News

A Jefferson City man has been charged with first-degree rape in connection with an incident that occurred in December in the Capital City.

Rodney Parham, 36, is also charged with second-degree sexual abuse.

A Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement states the incident was reported Dec. 30 in the 1800 block of Ella Street.

The victim, an acquaintance of Parham, alleged Parham appeared to be intoxicated and forcibly attacked her once and later had sex with her a second time.

When confronted by a family member of the victim, Parham allegedly admitted to these actions, then fled the residence.

Court records show Parham has been on probation for narcotics-related offenses and failed to show up for a meeting with his probation officer Jan. 3.
