A Jefferson City man with a lengthy criminal history is now facing sexual assault charges.
Court records show Rodney Parham, 36, was charged Friday with first-degree rape and second-degree sexual abuse.
The Jefferson City News Tribune reports the assault occurred Dec. 30 at Parham's home on Ella Street. The News Tribune reports the victim, an acquaintance of Parham's, told police he was drunk when he forcibly attacked her twice that night.
When confronted by the victim's family members, Parham fled the scene.
