CATLETTSBURG An Olive Hill man is being held at the Boyd County Detention Center on a warrant charging him with raping a child under the age of 12.

William R. Vannater, 65, was booked Saturday on three sex-offense charges — including first-degree rape — and is being held on $150,000 bond.

Online jail records show the charges stem from an Elliott County indictment. Kentucky State Police took Vannater into custody, according to jail records.

First-degree rape of a child younger than 12 years of age is a class A felony in Kentucky, punishable with between 20 and 50 years in prison.
