Following a grand jury indictment, an Elizabethtown man faces felony charges of rape and sodomy just more than a year after the alleged offense occurred.
Lincoln W. Pyles, 22, was indicted Thursday on charges of third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy and third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.
An indictment is an allegation, not proof of guilt. Pyles is innocent until proven guilty.
According to the grand jury, Pyles engaged in sexual intercourse with a girl younger than 16, which is the age of consent in Kentucky.
