In 2014, Christopher Don Carroll of Sheffield was arrested on charges of both First Degree and Second Degree Rape, his victim being under the age of 16. The now 30 year old Carroll accepted a plea that dropped the charge of First Degree Rape and he served 18 months in the state prison system.
Late last year the convicted sex offender was again arrested in Colbert County on charges of Second Degree Rape. Carroll failed to appear to face the charges in court and has been picked up and placed in jail without bond. Due to this being the offenders technically second rape charges, he faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
