A 47-year old Murfreesboro man has been charged with rape. Todd Johnson, who is currently living in a motel on Westgate Drive off of South Church Street, was arrested earlier this week.
The victim told police that she was with Johnson when he offered to take her and her children to church the following morning. The children and the victim decided to sleep at Johnson's place and fell asleep in Johnson's room. The trip to church never occurred and the victim was awakened by Johnson forcing her to have sex, according to his "Record of Arrest."
Johnson was interviewed by police and evidence was collected by Murfreesboro Detectives. Soon after, Johnson was arrested and placed in the local jail under a $50,000 bond. As of Thursday, Johnson was still behind bars. His court date has already been confirmed for October 20, 2014.
