A Spanish Fort High School senior who was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree rape was released on $45,000 bond.
According to terms set by the court this week Cameron Harrison, an 18-year-old football player, will be confined to home arrest, banned from the school’s campus and monitored with a GPS ankle bracelet as the case proceeds.
Harrison is accused of raping an unconscious 16-year-old female at a party in Daphne Oct. 24. The case is under investigation by the Daphne Police Department.
Baldwin County Schools spokesman Terry Wilhite would not comment on the specifics of the case and said it is in the hands of law enforcement at this point.
“Obviously, our comment has to be limited because this is an ongoing police and judicial matter,” Wilhite said. “It troubles us anytime we hear that a student has had an encounter with law enforcement, or the court system.”
According to Alabama law first-degree rape is a Class A felony, which could carry a sentence of 10 years to 99 years imprisonment.
UPDATE: On Monday, Daphne Police arrested Cathy B. Roberts, of Daphne, as part of the investigation into the rape. Detectives executed a search warrant at 30394 Middle Creek Circle as part of the rape investigation and Roberts of Daphne was arrested for hosting an open house party, allowing the consumption of alcohol by minors. This offense is a class B misdemeanor.
Daphne Police are not releasing any additional info at this time.
