BANDON - A 17-year-old has been charged as an adult with rape, court records filed in Perry Circuit Court show.

Joseph L. Alvey of 2022 Old Indiana 37, Bandon, faces a Class B felony. According to a probable-cause statement filed in Perry Circuit Court, the alleged rape took place within the last six months. The alleged victim told a health-care worker about the incident and state police were notified.

According to court documents, Alvey agreed to undergo a polygraph examination but his statements allegedly showed he "had been deceptive" when denying he had sexual intercourse with the woman.

A warrant for Alvey's arrest was issued June 18. When apprehended, he will be held on $100,000 surety or $10,000 cash bond.
