The Etowah County Sheriff's Office says they have charged an Attalla man with a rape-related offense.
46-year-old Charles William Smith has been arrested and is charged with one count of second degree rape. The charge stems from alleged incidents of abuse between 2007 and 2010 in the Gallant Community. The victim was under the age of 16 when the incident occurred.
Smith is currently being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on $15,000 bond.
