Investigator Josh Tubbs said the individual faces charges of first-degree rape and first-degree sexual abuse of a child less than 16 years of age.
The perpetrator is being held at Talladega County Jail on a $150,000 bond set by Judge Ryan Rumsey.
Tubbs did not release any details of the crimes alleged and explained the investigation is still ongoing.
First-degree rape is a Class A felony in Alabama carrying a sentence of 10 to 99 years in prison if convicted. First-degree sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16 is a Class C felony punishable by a sentence of two to 20 years in prison and a $5,000 fine upon conviction.
