Georgetown Campus Sex Assault Case Goes To Grand Jury

Posted at 3:15 PM, Oct 02, 2018

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (LEX 18) — The case of rape suspect Cody Alan Arnett was sent to a grand jury Tuesday afternoon.

Arnett, 33, appeared in a Scott County courtroom for a brief hearing and was remanded back into custody with a $100,000 cash bail.

Arnett is accused of a random, vicious sexual assault last month inside a Georgetown College housing unit. He has pleaded not guilty in the case.

Police say the attack was random and that Arnett entered the student’s campus apartment on Military Street.

Officials say he attacked the woman as she slept, sexually assaulted her multiple times and then forced her into a shower.

That’s when, police say, the victim bravely fought back by grabbing Arnett’s knife and stabbing him.

Arnett was sent to an area hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

Arnett has a lengthy criminal record. He pleaded not guilty to charges of rape, burglary and tampering with evidence. His bond was set at $100,000. He has five prior violent offense convictions.
