UPDATE: A man by the name of Elton Smithey has been indicted by a Rutherford County Grand Jury. The 39-year old convicted sex offender from Nashville was charged with two counts of "Rape of a Child" and three counts of "Aggravated Sexual Battery."

Past arrest records show that Smithey has a history of crime. Reports indicate he has been charged with violating the sex offender registration laws multiple times starting in 2010. He has also been charged in the past with burglary and attempted aggravated sexual battery in Rutherford County.

Smithey's most recent address was at a motel located in Antioch. However, his most recent charges of "Rape of a Child" (X2) stem from a case in Smyrna.

Looking Back:

In 2005 Elton E. Smithey pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted aggravated sexual battery in exchange for an effective six-year sentence to be served as one year of confinement followed by probation. Two years later, the trial court revoked the defendant's probation after he failed to enroll in a sex offender treatment class, failed to pay court costs and failed to maintain employment.

At that time, Smithey was in Rutherford County. However, he later moved to Wilson County. During that time Smithey's probation officer testified that he gave him a list of treatment providers to enroll in a sex offender treatment class. The probation officer said that Smithey took "No steps to enroll in treatment." Court records show, "He (Smithey) claimed that he had been enrolled in sexual offender treatment at The Guidance Center in Murfreesboro prior to requesting that his probation be transferred to Wilson County."
