Rape suspect denied bond

May 23, 2005

Albany -- An Albany man charged with rape is denied bond, as the Judge says he poses a serious threat to the community.

41 year old Melvin Davis will stay in the Dougherty County jail, when bond was denied at a hearing Monday. Prosecutors say he raped a 12 year old girl on West Third Avenue in February. He is charged with rape, aggravated child molestation, and drug charges.

Davis has five prior felony convictions, but none were sex crimes.
