VINCENT – Vincent resident Timothy Daniel Vinson, 49, was arrested on Wednesday, Aug. 17 on multiple sex crime charges.

On Wednesday February 1 at 11:30 a.m. , Police say Vinson coerced a girl between the ages of 12 and 16 into sexual relations with him. A crime he is said to have repeated 10 more times.

Vinson’s arrest came several months after the initial crime took place. He is being charged with three counts of first degree rape and three counts of enticing a child for immoral purposes. 

“Nothing is more wicked than the victimization of innocent children,” Shelby County Sheriff Samaniego said. “The men and women of the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office have no higher purpose than bringing predators to justice.”

Vinson’s given address is located just four minutes away from Vincent Middle High School

Currently Vinson is being held at Shelby County jail without bond, and a court date has yet to be set for his case. The investigation is still ongoing and details will be released as they become available.
