Alabama man charged with raping house cleaner


A Crossville, Ala, man was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with raping a 24-year-old woman in DeKalb County, Ala., authorities said.

Nicholas Jerome Sims, 29, had hired the woman to clean his house on County Road 104, DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris said in a news release this afternoon.

Police believe the alleged rape happened at midday Monday, Harris said. The woman was treated at Marshall Medical Center South and released.

Sims is charged with first-degree rape and is being held at the DeKalb County Detention Center on a $40,000 bond, Harris said.

He said Sims was awaiting trial in Etowah County on separate rape charges.

If convicted, maybe he will get a 350 lb cellmate that likes cleaning houses.

I think that Ron should just take it with pride and go back to Georgia! Take your friend Anita Ebersole who you gave a $75k per year raise after you took office. Take your followers ( Steve Leach) and your dictators ( Lee Norris ) with you. And dont forget your womanizer Paul Page! You are a liar and we city workers and taxpayers HATE MEAN people like you!
