The Alabaster Police Department arrested Brian Scott Dean, who lists an address on Stoney Trail, and charged him with counts of second-degree rape and second-degree sodomy.

The charges stem from incidents in early February, during which Dean allegedly engaged in sexual intercourse and deviate sexual intercourse with a female victim between the ages of 12 and 16, according to his arrest warrants.

Second-degree sodomy and second-degree rape are both Class B felonies, and are punishable by up to 20 years in prison upon conviction, according to Alabama law.

Dean is set to appear in Calhoun County District Court in Anniston for a preliminary hearing in front of Judge Randy Moeller on June 24.
