An Alabama carpentry company was indicted Tuesday on charges of rape and other sexual assaults against his wife and a contractor who worked with him, authorities said.
The charges stem from an alleged 2014 assault on the then-35-year-old husband’s wife, who was employed as a carpentry worker at the contractor’s home in Lumberton, according to a statement from Lumberyard Corp.
A statement from the Alabama Attorney General’s Office said a complaint was filed last year with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lacey, Alabama.
Lumberyard Co. and the former contractor have been placed on administrative leave, the statement said.
The Lumberyards was unavailable for comment.
The former contractor’s attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
An Alabama grand jury declined to indict the Lumbertown contractor last year on two counts of aggravated rape and sexual assault.
The prosecutor dropped the rape charge against him after finding that there was insufficient evidence.
A Lumber Town man was arrested in July 2016 on charges he allegedly raped his girlfriend and sexually assaulted his wife.
The man had worked for the company for nearly 10 years and the two had a child together, according the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
