An Albany man is indicted for raping his ten-year old niece,  and four family members are indicted for lying to prosecutors to cover up the abuse.

 

A grand jury indicted 24-year old James Clemmons for rape and 3 counts of aggravated child molestation.

His mother, Teresa Clemmons, her longtime live-in boyfriend Bunice Jones, and sister Tara Clemmons were all indicted for giving false statements.

They were arrested February 5th.

Prosecutors say they did nothing as James Clemmons raped the girl.

He is being held in the Dougherty County jail without bond.

Tara Clemmons will go on trial in two weeks for molesting her own son.
