Harlan woman arrested, charged with rape

A Harlan woman was recently arrested on a number of charges, including the alleged rape of a victim 12 years old or under.

Amanda Pace, 32, was arrested by Kentucky State Police trooper Darren Lowe on June 7.

According to a warrant issued by Harlan County Circuit Judge Kent Hendrickson on June 5, the indictment warrant charged Pace with first-degree rape (victim 12 or under), first-degree criminal abuse (victim 12 or under), first-degree sodomy (victim 12 or under) and first-degree sexual abuse (victim 12 or under).

Pace was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $25,000 full-cash bond and now awaits trial.

A Lynch woman was also arrested on June 7, with her charges connected to a kidnapping case.

Alexis Jenkins, 27, was arrested by Kentucky State Police trooper Darren Lowe on June 7.

According to the citation, she was a passenger in a car involved in Lowe’s investigation, which showed Jenkins had a federal warrant for her arrest entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). The information was then confirmed by the United States Marshal Service.

The original case allegedly tied Jenkins to a kidnapping case, requiring a warrant for extradition.

Jenkins was charged as a fugitive from another state (warrant required) and was lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $50,000 full-cash bond, awaiting extradition.
