Investigator charged with rape released on bond

Posted: December 5, 2012 - 8:47am

A Richmond County sheriff’s investigator accused of sexual assault was released from jail Tuesday on a $25,000 bond.

David T. Dutton, 35, had been held in the Columbia County Detention Center since Nov. 20 on charges of rape, aggravated sexual battery, illegal surveillance and false statements.

A Martinez woman filed a complaint Nov. 12 saying Dutton used his phone to take pictures during a sexual encounter that occurred while she was unconscious.

Dutton has been suspended from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office without pay pending a hearing before the review board.
