Grand jury indicts Devin Stafford for aggravated sodomy

Grand jury indicts Devin Stafford for
aggravated sodomy

Charge of false imprisonment also filed against the juvenile

Devin Xavier Stafford, a 14-year-old, middle school student accused of raping another student in September, was indicted last week by a grand jury in Evans County Superior Court on two felony counts of aggravated sodomy and false imprisonment.
Stafford’s name was released in November after the initial charges were made public. However, the false imprisonment charge contained in the December 10 indictment was not included in the original charges.
Stafford made bond shortly after the Thanksgiving holiday. “He’s out on bond right now,” said Sheriff Randall Tippins.
A hearing on a petition to revoke Stafford’s bond on the new charges was held yesterday in Tattnall County. “The plan is a motion to revoke the bond because he violated the bond that he was on and then there will be new charges too that he will have to make bond on,” Tippins explained, prior to the hearing.
A new bond was set for the false imprisonment charge and Stafford made bond. “He (the judge) set a bond on the false imprisonment and the same bondsman is going to do it,” Tippins said.
Bond conditions related to other charges filed against Stafford in November require that he is monitored very closely. Those records, however, are sealed.
