41-year-old James Denson is jailed in lieu of a $150,000 bond after being booked into the Metro Nashville Jail Tuesday, charged with the rape of a child. Officers responded to a middle school in Nashville after a 12-year-old disclosed to an investigator with the Department of Children’s Services she had been raped by her step-father at a local park after driving her there on his motorcycle, just days before his birthday earlier this month. Denson, who associates himself with several local ‘motorcycle/street bike clubs’ on his social media accounts, admitted to detectives that he drove her to a local Park, but requested a lawyer before answering any further questions. He remains jailed in restricted housing at DCSO.
