A Flemingsburg man was charged Wednesday with a rape that allegedly happened seven years ago, Kentucky State Police said.
Harold Scott Price, 56, was charged with first-degree rape and intimidating a participant in the legal process, a release from state police said. Additional charges are likely, police said.
State police in Morehead began investigating in July after a 17-year-old girl told investigators that Price raped her when she was 10.
The case was presented to a Fleming County grand jury, which issued an indictment against Price.
