Opp teen charged with rape

Published 7:21pm Friday, October 12, 2012

A 19-year-old Opp teen was jailed earlier this week for allegedly engaging in sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl.

Opp police officers found Ethan Beesley and the female walking on Ida Ave. Wednesday morning around 4.

Lt. Mark Kyser of the OPD said that when the pair was questioned, officers discovered there had been sexual contact between the two.

Beesley was arrested on rape II charges and booked into the Covington County Jail.

Rape in the second degree is a Class B felony, which carries a sentence of no less than two years and no more than 20 years, if convicted.

    No where in America is it more difficult to be in law enforcement than small towns where you know so many. It’s heart breaking to have to take actions to arrest or lock up old friends, their children or worse Relatives. Then to have others you have known for so long angry for doing what you are hired for or elected to do by those same people. But as tough as it is it must be done. Just put yourself in their shoes they are not without feelings but to protect all they must do the right thing.
    Remember this the law enforcement people did NOT put anyone in trouble they are just trying to stop it. The person put themselves in that situation.
