David Hall Lee – Repeat Sex Offender – Rapist


A Waynesville man who was already on the county’s registered sex offender list faces more rape charges based on an early Sunday morning incident.

According to Sheriff J.B. King, Waynesville police notified deputies about 4 a.m. Sunday that a 21-year-old woman had contacted them and said she had been forcibly raped at gunpoint in a location in rural Pulaski County. Sheriff’s logs show the incident occurred near a rural church southwest of Waynesville on Highway H. Sheriff’s detectives were promptly notified and began an investigation that took most of the day, ending only after a search warrant was executed about 7 p.m.

“Items of interest in the case were recovered, including a firearm,” King wrote in a prepared statement.

The suspect, David Hall Lee, 59, of Waynesville, has been charged by forcible rape, armed criminal action, forcible sodomy and felonious restraint, and is being held in the county jail in lieu of a $100,000 cash-only bond. King said the identity of the victim will not be released due to the circumstances of the crime.

Frank Bates – Repeat Sex Offender Strikes Again

A Perry county man received 15 years in prison Monday for a sex crime.

Frank Bates received his sentence from Circuit Judge Jack Meigs.

Bates, 32, had pleaded guilty to sex abuse in the first degree, according to District Attorney Michael Jackson.

“We will continue to declare ware on child molesters and ship them off to prison for a long time,” the district attorney said after the sentencing.

Court records show on Dec. 27, 2005, the Department of Human Resources was notified by a relative of a 6-year-old girl of suspected abuse by Bates.

The child was taken to a hospital where the physician found signs of abuse.

Bates was not related to the child. He was a registered sex offender at the time.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation Web site showed a conviction date of Nov. 5, 2001, for a Bates with the same name and birthdate. The Web site shows he was convicted of rape in the first degree.

The Web site also showed Bates as incarcerated in Donaldson Correctional Facility. He registered as a sex offender on May 22.

Frank Glover – Repeat Sex Offender – Retired Deputy

A retired Richmond County deputy is accused of molesting his daughter. Investigators arrested Frank Glover Tuesday afternoon.

Glover is charged with two counts of child molestation. According to the indictment, he touched his 15-year-old daughter in a sexual manner on two separate occasions in May.

Investigators say this isn’t the first time Glover has been accused of child molestation.

In 2005, while he was still working for the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, Glover’s stepdaughter accused him of molesting her. Charges were never filed in that case.

The mother, who doesn’t want to be identified, says she finally gets to see the father of her child, Glover, be brought to justice.

“I was shocked. I was hurt. I was shocked for something like this to happen,” the woman said.

The mother says only the truth can help her daughter heal.

“She just wanted him to be truthful about what he did to her. That’s all she wanted. She didn’t want anything bad to happen. She just wanted him to be truthful,” the mother said.

Glover worked at the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office for 25 years. He retired in October.
