A man accused of raping a 17-year-old girl last month is in jail on $50,000 bail today.
Stanley Brown, 46, is charged with first-degree sexual assault and first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, both felonies, stemming from an alleged incident Jan. 31.
Assistant District Attorney Dave Brower stated the facts of the case in an affidavit in court records:
In an interview with police Feb. 1, the girl said she was at home Jan. 31. She was alone, reading in her room, when Brown asked her to come into the living room. She told police he had been drinking heavily that night and started telling her "how rough his childhood was."
She told police she tried to leave, but Brown grabbed her arms, put her in a chair and sat across from her.
At this point in the police interview in February, the girl wrote what happened. She wrote that Brown forced her to have sex and told her "he wanted to show her how rough and mean men could be when they've had a few drinks."
When he had finished, she told police, she again tried to get away but he grabbed her by the arms and threatened her with violence if she told anyone.
Brown has been lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center since his arrest on Feb. 4. He was arraigned in Juneau District Court on Feb. 5 and has been denied a public defender based on his income. Brown's attorney has not been named.
If convicted, Brown could receive up to 20 years in prison for each count.
