Deputies arrested Marquis Knight, 31, late Tuesday for raping a teenager, according to John Olsen, an investigator with the Lanier County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say the incident happened in Lanier County late last year.

Knight is charged with statutory rape and was booked into the Cook County Jail before making bond.

The case is still open.

      Stay inside. Don't have contact with people of races, other than yours. A racist would do this, and other crimes to stir-up hatred! Think about it...They are out-there! Who are you looking at? Stay away!

        You were robbed by two black males, and you are on the 'net about it? Why aren't you on the six o'clock, with Julie? Don't tell me you couldn't identify the bad guys....

      @just a thought... yeah just keep on thinking. I am not supposed to attack anyone on here personally, so I won't. I want to be allowed to continue posting. Why don't you go look up the stats in relation to your comments. Or try to find the undocumented stats of what you are talking about. And you wonder why you have to make such a comment.

    a 15 yr old is incapable of providing consent, so no, the sex was not consensual.

        Just because a 15 year old girl says yes does not mean it's 'anything goes'. She's 15. Any adult should know better. A 15 year old isn't even in the right stage of brain development to think things through. There's no justification for ANY adult having sex with a minor. NONE.

    A minor cannot give consent. Rape is rape.
