Report: Mother says Facebook led to statutory rape charges

A Clayton County teen accused of having sex with a 12-year-old girl was arrested after the girl's mother did research on Facebook.

Rodney Duncan, 17, is accused of having sex with the minor, according to Channel 2 Action News. He was arraigned on statutory rape charges in Clayton County on Tuesday, the TV station reported.

The mother told Channel 2 Action News that she learned her daughter was in an intimate relationship when she went on Facebook and found an ongoing argument between the child and Duncan's girlfriend. She said she tracked down Duncan and tried to speak with his mother before going to police.
