Registered sex offender charged with 2010 rape of five-year-old

ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WITN) - A man in prison for failing to register as a sex offender has been arrested for a child rape that happened more than seven years ago.

Onslow County deputies charged Quonshe Brimmer with first degree statutory rape, first degree sex offense, and indecent liberties with a child.

Back in August, deputies say they learned that a child had been raped between September and October of 2010.

Deputies say the victim was five years old at the time and that the two knew each other.

The investigation led to Brimmer, who was already serving a 42-month sentence for not registering as a sex offender. Brimmer was placed on the sex registry after a 2014 conviction for crimes against nature.

Bond on the child rape charges was set at $220,000.
