Alleged rapist indicted


Grand jury charges two others

After being extradited from Fairfax, Virginia and arrested by Webster Parish Sheriff's Office July 10, Damion L. Mims was officially indicted on one count of aggravated rape by a Webster Parish grand jury on August 6.

To protect the victim, the family and integrity of the District Attorney's case, WPSO Chief Deputy Bobby Igo, Jr. said he could not release any details of Mims' alleged crime.

"The case is early," he said. "There's not going to be a whole lot of information because I don't think he's been to court yet – I don't want to taint anything."

A Webster Parish District Attorney representative said that their office could not discuss details of Mims' case pending a plea or trial.

Mims was transported from Virginia by the company, US Prison Transport, and arrested by WPSO Deputy Trey Copeland with the assistance of Deputy Tonya Hightower.

Mims' Facebook page indicates he is originally from Dale City, Virginia. His booking report lists an address in the 7000 block of Fuller Road in Cotton Valley, but he reportedly lived at a residence in the 3000 block of Dorcheat Road in Minden at some time as well.

Guin, Norton

The grand jury also passed down indictments for Bobby Glen Guin, of Minden, and Mary Lee Norton, of Springhill.

Guin is accused of pilfering around $100,000 from Webster Parish Coroner's Office while working there as a bookkeeper. He was indicted on counts of malfeasance in office and felony theft.

In an unrelated case, Norton was indicted on one count of second-degree murder. She is accused of murdering her live-in boyfriend, James Hudson of Springhill.

Reportedly, the couple was arguing at their residence and Hudson called friends to come pick him up. Before his friends' arrival, Norton allegedly stabbed Hudson in the chest with a steak knife.

Hudson's friends reportedly transported him to Springhill Medical Center where he died.

Mims and Norton are currently incarcerated at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center, both on $500,000 bonds. Guin bonded out on August 6, the day of his indictment.
