Normalville man charged with rape
A Normalville man is behind bars after being charged with the alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl.
Grover William Lilley, 63, of 21 Salty Dog Road, Normalville, was charged with rape, statutory sexual assault and indecent assault without consent.
Police said the victim told them she and her mother were homeless and living in a travel trailer on property located off of Hawkins Hollow Road.
Between 8:15 and 8:30 a.m. Thursday, the girl said Lilley allegedly ripped open the door to the trailer while her mother was not home.
Police said the girl reported Lilley entered the trailer and pulled her pants down. The girl said she slapped him in the face but Lilley pushed her onto the couch and was holding her by the arms when he raped her.
After Lilley left, the teen contacted her mother, who had a relative take her to Highlands Hospital for treatment.
A sexual assault examination was conducted on the girl but no signs of trauma or bruising was found near the girl's vaginal area.
The girl told police she had sex once before.
After he was taken into custody, Lilley told police he went to the trailer and asked the girl for sex. He said she consented. He said he did not force her but that the girl wanted to have sex in exchange for drug money.
When police attempted to have Lilley give a recorded confession and read his rights again, Lilley, who could not read or write, requested an attorney and the interview was stopped.
He was arraigned at District Judge Jesse Cramer's office and placed in the Fayette County Prison on $25,000 bond.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled at 10:15 a.m. Thursday at District Judge Ronald Haggerty's office.
