An 18-year-old Thompson High School student is being held in the Shelby County Jail on a $30,000 bond after he was arrested on March 1 and charged with first-degree rape.


Alabaster police arrested Alabaster resident Noe Ricardo Flores at 3 p.m. at THS and charged him with raping an underage girl.

Because the case involves an underage victim, Alabaster Police Chief Curtis Rigney said he could not release many details in the case.

Rigney said Flores’ charge stemmed from a previous alleged forcible rape at a residence in the city.

According to Alabama law, first-degree rape is a Class A felony and could carry a sentence of between 10-99 years in prison.
