Grand Jury in Warren Co. indicted John Ratliff (Jackson Kayak) Friday the 12 on two charges Rape. He was arrested and bail set for $50,000 on Monday the 19th, My question is why was his name not listed in paper with the rest of the indictments? Is this because he has hired an attorney or because he runs a business in sparta? Why does he get special treatment this whole time. It took them over a yr to get to the Grand Jury to make an arrest and it seems the local papers are tring to protect him. What about the young lady, is there any Justice?

If he was arrested in Warren Co. then he will not show up in SPARTA ARREST!!! Only people that show up in the mug shots/court news are people arrested IN SPARTA. How dumb are you? Their is no cover up. So once again. How dumb are you?

It was not put in the Southern Standard. I was wondering if anyone could tell me why? Could it be he hired an attorney. And the young lady was 17 and he was almost 40. And the Expositor acted like they didnt want to get the story because the lady knew His wife. A little strange. Just saying.

17 years old having sex with a 40 year old man? Lady is not the word I would use to describe her. At 17 you can put up a fight - is there photo evedince of cuts bruises? Is there ANY eveidence beside her accusations? If he is guilty, hang him. But if it was agreed between them, shame on both of them,, let it go. Nope, I have never met the man, his family, friends, nor do i have a clue who this female is.

Hello the cops have proof, like the rape test they did, if they had no proof he wouldn't be going to jail, oh and the girl, how could a 80 lb girl put up a fight! I hope he burns in hell for what he did to this girl, she is a friend of the family and still can't talk about it to this day! you people are stupid if your going to defend him!

I don't agree with it but 17 is the legal age of consent. However rape is illegal at any age.

i see this man like everyday he comes into my work. he always seems so nice and respectful when i speak to him. i am so shocked i don't know how i will keep a straight face and talk normally when i see him come into my work Monday. =S i know nothing about him though so i guess i shouldn't be so surprised he is basically a stranger but still wow..

What happened to innocent until proven guilty? If this man is truly guilty, they should string him up by his little ones and leave him to die. BUT if he's not guilty, his life is already being ruined right here.
There may be some on here that think they know all the facts but what if they don't? And what if they are wrong about the facts they've been told? I understand the family of the girl being upset that it's taken this long to get charges pressed but that IS how the justice system works. And to convict someone on Topix or any website without giving them a chance to defend themselves with facts and testimony is just wrong and un-American.

This case went front of a grand jury to indict him of these charges, they had to present enough evidence to get the arrest. He was indicted and arrested, my question was why was he not in the paper with the rest of the indictments? And 17 and 38/40 yr old man is not consent
