A Dawsonville man now faces charges for two crimes, one of which is a felony.
The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office charged Richard Rolomas Landrum II, 52, with rape and driving under the influence. The alleged incidents occurred on separate days.
A deputy responded to a “possibly impaired driver” at a residence off of Hwy. 9 in Dawsonville around 12:30 p.m., Nov. 3, according to an arrest report.
At the time of his arrest, Landrum was driving his car with one passenger, an elderly person.
Two days later, DCSO issued a warrant for Landrum’s arrest regarding the rape charge. That alleged incident happened at the same residence sometime between 11 p.m. Halloween night and 7 a.m., Nov. 1.
No bond has been set for the rape charge.
DCN staff will continue to report on this story as more information becomes available.
