Gray man charged with sexual battery, rape of juvenile relative

A Gray man is facing multiple rape and sexual battery by an authority figure charges in Sullivan County Circuit Court.

Michael Scott Richardson, 36, 184 Oak Grove Road, Gray, Tenn., was arrested on charges including two counts of rape and 11 counts of sexual battery by an authority figure on Feb. 23. He was released the same day after posting a $75,000 bond.

According to court records, a Sullivan County grand jury returned sealed indictments against Richardson on Feb. 15. The indictments allege Richardson sexually abused a female relative on numerous occasions between January of 2009 and March of 2010. It's also alleged that he raped the same girl twice in August of 2009.

The alleged victim was between 13 and 14 years of age at the time of the alleged offenses.

Richardson is scheduled for a March 11 court appearance.
