Indian Trail resident faces fourth accusation in less than 12 months
Already facing trial on charges of kidnapping and sexual assault, Indian Trail resident Robert Viehmeyer turned himself in this week after allegations surfaced of another rape, earlier this month.
Viehmeyer, 19, was originally arrested last July and charged with three counts of kidnapping, two counts of sexual battery, two counts of sexual offense, two counts of second-degree rape and one count of attempted rape. Each of the girls involved in those earlier cases were under the age of 16 when the incidents allegedly occurred. Viehmeyer was released on a $100,000 bond. In February, Viehmeyer was picked up again, this time on charges of drug possession and again, released on bond.
Now he faces an additional charge of second-degree rape, after a 17-year-old girl came forward to report an incident that allegedly happened in early March of this year.
“Viehmeyer was indeed charged with an additional rape,” Capt. Cody Luke, with the Union County Sheriff’s Office, said. “He turned himself in and was placed under a $500,000 bond.”
The Fairfax, Va., native is 5 feet 10 inches tall, with short brown hair and green eyes, with a tattoo on his upper arm. He was a student last year at a local high school.
