Ike David Simmons

— A Wake County grand jury on Tuesday indicted a 37-year-old Fayetteville man on 13 counts of child sex crimes, according to court records.

Ike David Simmons was arrested Aug. 2 and initially charged with two counts of first-degree sexual offense of a child stemming from two alleged assaults of a 12-year-old in Apex in 2009. Investigators said Simmons and the victim know each other, but did not release more information about their relationship.

He now faces multiple counts of statutory sex offense, statutory rape and indecent liberties with a child for alleged assaults spanning from January to June.

Simmons, a registered sex offender, was convicted for other crimes in 2003 by a military court.

    While not defending him, so I guess we should use your 'solution' for those with drug and/or alcohol issues? They ruin lives also, kids and adults. And while he is one of the few, sex offenders have the lowest rate of repeat. Again, not defending him, just pointing out that drastic statements should not be made about anyone who has committed any crime.
