ROSEBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — A Roseboro man is behind bars and facing multiple child sex crime charges following an investigation by the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office, authorities said in a release Tuesday.
On Aug. 3, sheriff’s office investigators “received information from a victim who reported that Phillip Stanley…had a sexual relationship with her while she was a minor,” the release said.
As the sheriff’s office investigated the report, enough probable cause was developed to charge Phillip Durwood Stanley, 53, with rape of a child by an adult, sexual assault of a minor, six counts of statutory rape/sexual offense involving a minor, and four counts of indecent liberties.
Stanley was taken into custody on Aug. 20 and charged with the crimes.
He is currently being held in the Sampson County Jail under a $1 million bond.
