Auburn Police charge man with first degree rape for 2019 sexual assault

Alabama

AUBURN, Ala. (WRBL) – Auburn Police have charged a 23-year-old man with first degree rape.

Bradlee Mark Head, 23 of Auburn, will face a felony Grand Jury indictment for the rape charge.

An acquaintance of Head identified him after the sexual assault was reported, according to a news release published on the website of the Auburn Police Division.

Auburn Police’s investigation findings were given to the Lee County District Attorney’s office and presented to a Grand Jury.

Police say Head was taken into custody on July 29 on charges stemming from the 2019 sexual assault on Thomas Street.

“My office is pleased to represent Bradlee Head concerning the false charges of rape brought against Brad through the City of Auburn Police Department in what will be shown was a brief and grossly incomplete investigation,” said Davis Whittelsey of the Whittelsey & Corley, P.C. law firm. “Brad Head will be entering a plea of not guilty to the charges, and is confident that when he is afforded an opportunity to present the truth to a Lee County Jury, he will be fully vindicated.”

“He [Bradlee] turned himself into the detective working the case,” said Whittelsey. “He bonded out Thursday.”

Head had been transported to the Lee County Jail on a $100,000 bond, following the indictment, according to Auburn Police.
