SEVIERVILLE — Investigators have charged a Morristown man with two counts of aggravated statutory rape after he allegedly had contact with two minors last October.
Bradley Aaron Watkins, 37, of Morristown, allegedly was visiting a Sevierville home in October when he propositioned two 13-year-old girls for sex.
One of the two said that she turned him down several times, and that at some point he had sex with the other girl.
He then returned a few days later, and the first girl said she was pressured into having sex with him on that occasion, after again trying to refuse.
“She stated that she said no several times. … she finally agreed because she was afraid of what he would do to her and losing her only friend,” according to court documents.
Watkins was also charged with violating an order of protection for texting another party in violation of a court order prohibiting contact with that person.
