Grand jury indicts woman in child sex casePublished 9:39am Friday, November 23, 2012
An Ironton woman was indicted by a Lawrence County grand jury on sex crimes in connection with the rape of a toddler.
The indictment, which was returned this week, charged Alice Reffitt, 21, of 1414 S. First St., with first-degree complicity to rape and second-degree pandering obscenity involving a minor.
According to the indictment, Reffitt “did with knowledge of the character of the material or performance involved, create, direct or produce an obscene performance that has a minor as one of its participants.”
Co-defendant in the case, Jeremy Curry, 22, of South Point, was arraigned last month for the rape of a 2-year-old girl at his home last month, to which Reffitt is allegedly complicit.
A mental evaluation of Curry was ordered after he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Bond was set at $1 million cash on a $100,000 own recognizance bond.
The maximum prison sentence for a person found guilty of the first-degree rape of a child under the age of 13 is life in prison without the possibility of parole.

• Craig Adkins, 47, of 396 Township Road, Proctorville, burglary.
