A Mountain City, Tennessee man is now facing a grand jury on sex charges involving a juvenile. According to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, (JCSO) Adam David Roush had charges amended during his preliminary hearing last month to one count of statutory rape and two counts of sexual battery by an authority figure. The incident reportedly took place earlier in June, involving inappropriate text messages and followed by asexual assault of the victim at a home. JCSO officials said that the incident was family related and that Roush began sending the victim inappropriate messages then once together he began asking her inappropriate questions and showing her inappropriate pictures online. Roush then allegedly began to force her to participate in sexual acts and she was too afraid not to.  When she had the chance to leave, she called 911. Roush is scheduled to appear in Johnson County Criminal Court on Sept. 17.
