Teen Charged With Rape, Sex Offense

A teenager who was arrested last month for stealing guns from his uncle is behind bars again, this time on charges of having a sexual relationship with a girl who was 14 years or younger.

Justin Day of Newport was arrested Thursday on statutory rape and two counts of statutory sex offense on a child.

Deputies say the offenses happened in February.

The 18-year-old was arrested last month by Morehead City police for stealing a dozen guns from his uncle's home on Taylor Lane over a several month period.

Day will go before a judge today and is jailed on a $50,000 bond.
