PERRY COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Perry County man is behind bars and facing a $100,000 bond for a statutory rape charge.

Tyler Goff, 20, of the Janice Community, was charged with statutory rape of a 14 year-old girl.

“Goff had been having sexual relations with the 14 year-old on more than one occasion and was apprehended after the guardians found the girl missing,” said Perry County Sheriff Jimmy Dale Smith.

Mississippi State law states that a child under the age of 16 cannot consent to sexual relations with another person.

Goff is currently housed at the Perry County Adult Detention facility.
