An Elizabethton woman was arrested after a grand jury indicted her on five counts of raping a child.
On Thursday night, Christy Lee Scott, 35, 360 Minton Hollow Road, was arrested by Carter County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Smithpeters on the indictment, which was handed down by a Carter County grand jury on Nov. 8.
Sheriff Chris Mathes said both the indictment and the arrest were the result of an investigation that was conducted by his office over a period of several months.
“It’s one of those cases that’s very serious,” Mathes said. “She was a trusted friend and would care for … the male juvenile. They began a sexual relationship.”
