A 35-year-old Murfreesboro man has been arrested for allegedly molesting a child.
The case started with a referral from the Department of Children Services followed by an investigation by the Detective Tommy Roberts with the Murfreesboro Police Special Victims Unit.
In June of this year (2019), Randy Dickens was named as a suspect in the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl. Evidence from the case was presented to the Rutherford County Grand Jury earlier this month (August) and the outcome was Dickens being indicted on one count of Aggravated Rape, three counts of Sexual Battery by an Authority Figure, one charge of Solicitation of a Minor and one charge of Solicitation for Sexual Exploitation of a Minor.
Dickens was taken into custody at his residence, which is the Westbury Farms Apartments on the New Salem Highway in Murfreesboro.
