Fuquay-Varina man faces rape charge

Posted July 1, 2012

— A Fuquay-Varina man has been accused of kidnapping and raping a woman.

Jessie Jermelle Beckwith, 23, of 709 Marjam Lane, was charged Saturday with one count of second-degree kidnapping and two counts each of first-degree rape and second-degree sexual offense. He was placed in the Wake County jail under a $750,000 secured bond. His first court appearance was set for Monday.

Beckwith was released from jail in January after serving eight months for March 2011 convictions for felony common-law robbery and breaking-and-entering, according to state Division of Adult Corrections records.

    You are absolutely right. That is why the courts needs to give this young man 45 years in prison. When he do get out he will be an old man.
