Rhea County authorities say a man is in custody facing 14 charges for child sex crimes. Officers were recently called to a home in Soddy Daisy in response to living conditions that were unacceptable for kids. The girls made allegations of inappropriate contact by 39-year-old Roy Benton. The girls also told DCS officials that it had also happened while they lived in Rhea County. A grand jury met and indicted Benton on 5 counts each of child rape and incest and 4 counts of aggravated sexual battery. Benton is currently being held in the Rhea County Jail without bond.
