On August 14, 2018, a concerned guardian reported to Jones County Sheriff’s Investigators a possible rape of a juvenile. The juvenile was in the care of the guardian, and had told her she was raped by Derek McAdoo, 26 of Bay Springs, prior to living with the guardian.
A forensic interview was conducted on the juvenile, where she revealed an incident where McAdoo forced himself sexually on her.
A warrant was issued for McAdoo. He was taken into custody on September 11, 2018 after a traffic stop by Laurel Police Department and charged with Statutory Rape.
McAdoo’s initial appearance is scheduled for September 12, 2018 at 1:00PM at Jones County Justice Court.
