An Evans teen charged with raping a 12-year-old girl will remain in jail.
Superior Court Senior Judge Albert M. Pickett refused to grant a bond for Blake Davis Weems, 17, at a hearing Friday in Evans.
Weems, of Quinn Drive, is charged with rape and aggravated child molestation.
He was arrested June 12 after a 13-year-old girl told her parents that he molested her beginning last summer, when she was 12.
The girl said Weems forced her to have sex and commit other sex acts with him, according to the Columbia County Sheriff’s office incident report.
“He admits it was against her will, he knew it was wrong, but he couldn’t help himself,” Jared Williams, of the District Attorney’s Office, told the judge Friday.
Pickett denied to grant a bond, but said he’d reconsider it if a proposal involved an electronic monitoring device.
Weems is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center.
