Ricky Blair accused of raping young woman:
Posted in the Benton Forum

A naked young woman just ran screaming from Ricky Blair's home in Benton. She ran to a neighbors home where she alleged that Ricky Blair had raped her. The police were called and are investigating.
Maybe this will be the case that finally puts this mentally-disturbed nutcase away for a while before he kills somebody.
More to come - keep your eye on the news.

Heard it on the police scanner at about 9:20pm... Last I heard (at 9:46pm) was that the Benton police are now searching for Ricky Blair. Your right, he needs to be put away where he wont hurt anybody. Hes been in way too much trouble and the courts have been way to lenient with him.

Have you forgotten this is Franklin County?
#4 Jul 28, 2008
I'll bet he doesn't get charged. That would require the Benton cops to get off there asses and actually do something. I just can't see that happening...

Benton police officers responded to a call at 9:20 p.m. Monday in the 300 block of South Wilson Street in regard to a report of a sexual assault.<br><br>
Officers spoke with a witness who said he had approached the residence to speak with Ricky L. Blair, 32, of Benton.<br><br>
The witness said loud music was coming from the residence and a woman was screaming inside the residence. The witness said he knocked on the door and forced his way into the residence because no one responded. The witness observed Blair and a woman inside the residence.<br><br>
According to the police report, both Blair and the woman ran from the scene. Officers located Blair and made contact with the woman at a nearby residence.<br><br>
The woman, 47, was transported to Franklin Hospital emergency room. Blair was transported to the Franklin County Jail and charged with sexual assault.

This isn't the first time Ricky Blair has been accused of a sexual assault. It's the first time he has been charged with it though.
Ricky (Lee) Blair has no less than 59 (yes, that's fifty nine - 60 with this latest charge) cases on his criminal record, yet he always slips through the cracks and walks away easy. Maybe this will be the case that finally puts this social menace away for a long time before he kills somebody.

Well Larry, it looks like you were wrong. Props to the Benton Police Officers for doing their job in this matter, now hopefully the States Attorney's office will pursue the case aggressively.

47 is a young woman?
#9 Jul 29, 2008
"Charging them" doesn't mean anything....throwing them in jail means nothing......they are released and allowed to walk the streets again and again and again. Folks this IS Franklin County! Doesn't matter if the police do their jobs or not if it doesn't get "fixed" higher up.

Does that make it alright?

Maybe he will be electrocuted trying to steal copper then taken home and put in a freezer. Then returned to the copper theft scene 4 days later frozen. Maybe he will get hit by a train while walking across the tracks drunk. Maybe he will commit "suicide" by laying on the railroad tracks. Anything can happen and usually does.

That means all of the facts are not in yet and at least one of the facts that is in is incorrect. 47 is not a "Young Woman".

I think the original poster was relaying th information as he heard it. But it doesn't matter... Whether the victim is young or old, this menace needs to be locked away for a long time.

ricky blair is currently being held in the franklin county jail with no bail set. This may change in upcoming court appearances, well have to see what the judge does this time... i hope to see a bail of $100,000 or greater as this man has proven to be a great danger to the community.
#15 Jul 29, 2008
Yes he is a danger....I've run him away from my neighborhood before because of all the little children that play around here.
#16 Jul 29, 2008
It seems the general consensus is that Ricky Blair is a menace to society who needs to be put away. People in the community seem genuinely afraid of him.
Perhaps we should address letters to the judge assigned his case to be considered at any upcoming sentencing hearing.

Dang, looks like an illegal alien in a sanctuary city.
I know, not a joking matter.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!
I don't know this man personally but I know of his family - they have quite the reputation in Benton. With a record like that I think he has proven that he has absolutely no regard for the law. I hope SA Tom Dinn doesnt allow him some sweet plea bargain and let this guy walk. This guy seems like a walking time bomb and eventually he will end up killing someone.
