No bond for rape suspect

May 24, 2005

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

Forty-one-year-old Melvin Davis will stay in the Dougherty County jail, after 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.
