Sheriff says inmate fakes rape claim in Washington County Detention Center

Joshua Ellis Crabtree


A Washington County Detention Center inmate confessed that he faked a claim that another inmate raped him last week, Sheriff Ed Graybeal announced Thursday in a news release.


Joshua Ellis Crabtree, 21, an inmate held at the Detention Center on various misdemeanor charges since April, was charged with filing a false report, a class D felony.


Graybeal said Crabtree claimed that another inmate had raped him on Jan. 26, which prompted authorities to take him to Johnson City Medical Center where a rape kit was completed.
