Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested 29-year-old Harold Robert House, 612 E. Maple St., Johnson City, on accusations that he had sex with the 17-year-old Kingsport girl twice on Friday.
In a court document, Investigator Jared Taylor reported that House had helped the girl run away from home on Friday by picking her up from her residence in Kingsport about 2:15 a.m. with the intention that the two would live together. The girl left her family a note spelling out her intentions, and the family reported her as a runaway. The girl was found sleeping in the back seat of House’s vehicle parked at the fairgrounds.
