TUSCALOOSA, AL, USA – A 27-year-old Duncanville man was arrested after being sexually involved with a 15-year-old girl for more than a year.
Robert Ebenezzar Causey, 27, was arrested Wednesday, Sept. 19 and charged with second-degree rape and second-degree sodomy.
According to a blog post by Andrew Segal, from Segal & Segal LLC, “Alabama does not independently define sodomy as a crime but defines criminal actions involving deviant sexual intercourse as sodomy crimes. Deviant sexual intercourse means sexual conduct between unmarried people involving the sex organs of one person and the mouth or anus of the other. Consensual oral or anal sex between people married to one another is not a crime in Alabama” (Segal & Segal LLC).
On Wednesday, Sept. 19, the investigation began when the Tuscaloosa Police Department’s Juvenile Division was informed about an underage girl being in a motel room with an adult male. Investigators were called to the Motel 6 located at the 4700 block of McFarland Boulevard East, where they found the two.
According to Tuscaloosa Police Lt. Teena Richardson, when investigators arrived Causey was found hiding in the closet.
Causey was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail Sept. 19, with a $60,000 bond, each charge totaling $30,000.
