A 21-year old Murfreesboro man charged with one count of rape is now facing bribery charges that were handed down by a grand jury. Matthew Reive was arrested and charged with the rape that allegedly occurred at the College Grove Apartments on the New Lascassas Highway this past July. According to police reports, a 19-year old woman was found scantily dressed and stumbling in the parking lot at the complex. The female claims someone gave her a drink before she became "woozy". A witness at the pool party reportedly claims to have seen Reive commit the crime.

On Thursday, Reive was charged with one count of bribery. Reive allegedly bribed the victims boyfriend in order to get her side of the story prior to court. The April Lane resident was booked into the local jail under a $10,000 bond.
