The Benton Police Department has arrested a man for a second time in connection with allegedly drugging and raping a juvenile.
The male juvenile victim in the case provided information about a suspect, identified as James Gilliam, 32.
Lt. Kevin Russell, Benton Police Department spokesperson, said Gilliam contacted the victim online.
The Saline County Sheriff's Office announced in July that they would begin suspending drivers' licenses and issuing arrest warrants for individuals who are behind on their fine.
The procedure began on July 26 after a 30-day notification period according to Lt. Scott Courtney, Saline County Sheriff's Office spokesperson, and affects people who have not complied with their monthly payment arrangements.
Sheriff Cleve Barfield said, "There are a large number of offenders that have made very few payments on court-ordered judgments."
