LAWRENCEBURG, Tenn. - Court documents are helping us learn more about two people arrested in the case involving the rape of a 16-month-old child.
Court documents say Porter confessed to raping the child. Documents say he caused severe and possibly permanent damage. His charge, aggravated rape of a child, is a Class A felony that could come with a punishment of 15-60 years in prison.
Those same documents show Bowen's charges stem from the fact that she didn't take the child for medical treatment.
Porter's bond is set at $1,000,000, and News Channel 5 in Nashville reports Bowen's bond is $100,000.
We understand Porter is being held in an isolation cell at the Lawrence County, Tennessee Jail for his protection. Bowen is also being held in an isolation cell.
At this time, there is no update on the condition of the child.
