Staff Report • Jan 20, 2010 at 12:00 AM

The Morristown Citizen-Tribune is reporting that a suspended Grainger County deputy – who is under investigation by the TBI – has been arraigned on charges of statutory rape and solicitation of a minor, according to Sheriff James Harville.

Trenedy Brooks faces two counts of statutory rape. Investigators said the alleged female victim is 16, according to published reports. Brooks was arrested on Friday and was released over the weekend on a $60,000 bond.

Brooks, 27, was placed on leave in May of 2009 due to being under investigation by the TBI on an unrelated incident. Harville said he is unsure of the status of the TBI investigation.
