A Carter County man is behind bars after investigators uncovered evidence that he sexually assaulted a juvenile.
Deputies responded to Sycamore Shoals Hospital on Apr. 1, 2019 where they obtained evidence and statements from the victim, according to a release.
Investigators obtained a search warrant for 36-year-old Joshua Adam Hill’s residence. That’s where they say they found evidence that corroborated the victim’s statement.
An arrest warrant for Hill was issued on May 10. Hill was arrested May 14 on two counts of aggravated rape.
He is being held in the Carter County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.
Hill was previously arrested in 2018 for reckless endangerment, but those charges were later dropped.
