Former federal law enforcement officer charged with rape in Boone Co

Sexual assault charges are filed in Boone County against a former federal law enforcement officer.

An arrest warrant was filed yesterday against Kristopher Roberson, 28.  He's charged with rape and sodomy for an alleged incident in February.

The victim told police Roberson was staying with her when the assault happened.  She says she tried to escape but was unable to.

Court documents state Roberson has previously indicated he plans to leave the state and not return.  Investigators say he also poses a danger to the victim because, as a former law enforcement officer, he's in possession of a gun.
