Putnam Teenager Facing Rape Charges

A Putnam County teenager, who allegedly had sex with a girl under the age of thirteen, will now be tried as an adult. Authorities say 18-year-old Travis Jerred Meadows of Algood, was originally charged as a juvenile for incidents that occurred over the course of several years, starting in 2006. He's now been indicted on three counts of rape of a child, one count of attempted rape of a child, and one count of aggravated sexual battery and will be arraigned on those charges in Criminal Court on July 20th.
