JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Two people have been charged in connection to a Jones County rape case. 

On Saturday, Jones County Sheriff’s Department deputies and investigators responded to a report of a rape of a juvenile. 

The victim and her guardian reported on Friday that Kimberly Nicole Zuniga-Hancock, 32 of Laurel, took the victim to a residence on Indian Springs Road to meet with Alberto Contreras, 40 of Laurel. 

It was determined by investigators that Hancock and Contreras were texting earlier on Friday while Hancock and the victim were together. 

Hancock was telling Contreras she had a “friend” who would perform sexual acts for money. 

Hancock brought the victim to Contreras' residence  

The three then consumed alcohol, and Hancock left the residence to pick up a friend. 

According to the Jones County Sheriff Alex Hodge, this is when Contreras forced himself on the victim. 

Following the rape, the victim left the scene and went to a nearby relative’s home, according to the news release. 

The sheriff said the victim’s guardian was contacted and took the victim to a local hospital for medical attention.

Contreras was taken into custody on Saturday, and a short time later, Hancock was arrested. 

Contreras was charged with rape-assault with intent to ravish.  Hancock was charged with contributing to neglect/delinquency of a child. 

Both made their initial appearances at Jones County Justice Court Monday at 10 a.m.

Hancock was given a $40,000 bond for her conspiracy to commit a crime charge, and $10,000 for the contributing to the delinquency of a minor charge. 

Contreas' bond for both charges was revoked due to him being an illegal alien, and was deemed a flight risk.
