Man arrested on sex charges


A man indicted last month on sex-related charges was arrested at a Lily residence on Tuesday afternoon.

Robert Freeman, 38, was arrested by Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective/U.S. Marshal Warrant Task Force Officer Jason Back around 4:13 p.m.

Freeman was wanted on an indictment warrant stemming from charges from a Laurel grand jury on March 21 on four counts of second-degree rape of a 14-year-old child. The indictment states the incidents occurred during 2013, with the first count alleging that Freeman had sexual intercourse with the child between January and February, the second count occurring between March and April, the third incident taking place between May and June, and the fourth happening between July and August.

Freeman lists two addresses — one of Tennessee Avenue in Corbin on the indictment warrant and one of Braxton Lane in Lily on the sheriff’s reports.

The indictment warrant lists a $10,000 cash bond and non-financial conditions that Freeman have no contact with the victim in this case. He was set for an arraignment hearing in Laurel Circuit Court on April 18 at 10 a.m.
