Former Fayetteville officer accused of rape

FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - A former Fayetteville police officer has a January court date to face rape charges.

Fayetteville police say former officer Jamison Stiles was arrested Friday for an alleged attack in November against a woman at an apartment complex where he also worked as a security guard.

Stiles was fired from the department on Dec. 16 for refusing to cooperate in the rape investigation and for other infractions. A day later, a former Fayetteville police dispatcher told investigators that Stiles raped her at her home while he was on duty.

Our ABC station in Fayetteville, 40/29 News, reports that Stiles bonded out of the Washington County Jail on Sunday and that he has a Jan. 24 court appearance
