Eastern Lincoln man faces charges for statutory rape



Staff Writer


Deputies have charged an eastern Lincoln County man involved in a sex-related incident with a teen girl more than two years ago, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Jeremiah Lee Mitchell, 37, of 5467 King Wilkinson Road in Denver, inappropriately touched a 15-year-old girl at a home in Iron Station, according to an agency press release.

Deputies charged the man after he turned himself in at the magistrate’s office this month.

He faces one felony count each of statutory rape of a 13-, 14-, or 15-year-old by a defendant six years older and indecent liberties with a minor.

Mitchell has since been released on a $50,000 unsecured bond, the Sheriff’s Office said.
