Fayetteville man accused of raping girl, fathering her children

Posted January 8, 2010

— Cumberland County sheriff’s detectives have charged a 38-year-old man with raping a 15-year-old girl.

The girl told authorities that Warren Edwards, of 3104 Aglow Drive, fathered her two children. The relationship reportedly began in 2007, detectives said. 

Authorities charged Edwards with three counts of statutory rape of a minor and three counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor.

He was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $225,000 secured bond. A first court appearance was scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Friday in the Detention Center Courtroom.

    good question ambergail. What age was her "mother" when she was conceived? The mother of this child she be charged with child endangerment, child neglect. Story does not give us any info on how this came to the attention of law enforcement.
    shortcake..I agree with you.
    I gas up in a station across from a HS, which the "kids" hang out in. I see so many of them that are SHOWING, I just wonder who has planted the seed. I stopped believing in storks many years ago.

    I wonder if there was ever any DSS CPS involvement. Like I wonder when they are going to say why the SBI asked for DSS records on Shaniya Davis' mother. The NCGenAssbly gave 16 yr old kids the right to consent to sex, except they can't with teachers,coaches,etc. because that is a FELONY no matter their age. Most of these educators charged with child/student sex offenses get to plead down and get probation only. Sixteen year old kids can consent to have sex BUT the NCGesAssbly doesn't want them to have sex education. I think I want to know if DSS CPS was involved. Hopefully the MEDIA will follow up on this and Shaniay Davis' case.

    I agree with ShortCake...but then again. In these days you never know. Kids in middle school are having kids.

    Instead of being shot with a camera, they should have used something that would cause fatal injuries....immediately....then took a picture.

    "Well raptor06, let me write it differently. And this is a fact, truth whatever you want it to be.

    Only 40 percent of teens who give birth before the age of 18 years complete high school and as many as 75 percent of unmarried teenagers end up on welfare." - blossom3100

    Where do these statistics come from?! Anyone can just make up percentages. 60% of the time, it works every time. If you want to sound more factual, use fractions instead.

    WOW, I must have gotten a really, really thin skinned censor when I posted my first comment based on the some of the comments that were posted and weren't worded as nicely. Or maybe I just got one who had first hand knowledge and couldn't handle the truth.

    From the previous comment: If this was going on,where were this girl's parents? Where were they?
    Why would they let a grown man who wasn't even a member of the family,have his way with a underage girl while both parents were not around? And had 2 children by this creep?

    The guy who did this to her is one sick puppy and should be locked up for the rest of his life. I know this girl's mama is really mad...I would be too if I knew my child was fooling around with the next door loser.

    "He was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $225,000 secured bond."

    Bond for child abuse, especially child sexual abuse, should never be less than $1M.

    If this guy is guilty, and DNA of the children will tell, he should spend the rest of his days in prison. PERIOD!!!

    Praying for the girl.

    And for those of you saying the girl may have given in to him for favors, the guy is charged with RAPE not STATUTORY RAPE.

    God bless.

    I haven's seen a 13 year old I would want to have sex with since I was about 14. It's sick and twisted, and to stereotype it, it's accepted and the norm.
