NOTE:  Names are not posted unless/until a suspect is indicted.

On March 30 (2022), the Grayson County Grand Jury indicted the suspect who Van Alstyne police arrested in late January on several felony sexual charges.

At the Grand Jury’s Wednesday (March 29, 2022) session, it indicted Koby Ryan Rhoden on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child (rape); two counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact; and one count of sexual performance by/with a child-employ, induce, authorize. These are, according to the Texas Penal Code, first- and second-degree felonies with possible penalties, if found guilty, of up to life imprisonment.

Rhoden, age 24 and of Denison, remains in Grayson County Jail in lieu of bail set at a total of $2,251,500 on numerous counts. He was out on bail at the time of his January arrest on a 2019 charge of theft.

Police Lt. Steven Hayslip said that, after a recent request that any other possible victims of Rhoden please let police know about those, three other victims came forward. Hayslip added that the investigation is still going on and that Rhoden faces the possibility of additional indictments on similar charges. Anyone can contact Van Alstyne Police 903-482-5251.

An indictment is a formal charge, and not proof of guilt.
