Kentucky jailer indicted
(2008-09-15)
(WOUB) - An eastern Kentucky jailer was indicted for allegedly raping a female inmate he was transporting.

Boyd County grand jurors on Friday charged 50-year-old Charles F. Howard of Sandy Hook with one count of first-degree rape.

Howard was arrested Sept. 2 after a 26-year-old female inmate told authorities that Howard raped her in a remote area as he was taking her from Elliott County to the Boyd County Detention Center in Catlettsburg.

If convicted, Howard could be sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison.

Howard was free on bond Friday.
