Incest Arrest

February 26, 2014

On Monday, February 24, 2014 the Auburn Police Division arrested Nathan S. Childers, age 29 from Auburn on felony warrants charging him with rape first degree, sodomy first degree and incest. 


The arrest is the result of an investigation of a police report dated February 23, 2014 in which officers received information that Childers had previously been engaged in inappropriate and illegal sexual contact with a female relative under the age of twelve.  The incident was reported to have occurred while the child was in his care at his residence, located in the 300 block of Webster Road in Auburn. 


The Auburn Police Division immediately initiated a investigation and also made notification to the Lee County Department of Human Resources.  Arrest warrants were subsequently obtained on Childers and he was taken into custody at his residence.  The victim was placed into foster care by DHR until the investigation is complete.  


Childers was transported to the Lee County Detention Facility where his bond was set at $150,000.  The investigation is ongoing and addition charges are expected in the case.
