Melissa Garcia


A 49-year-old Dickson woman was indicted for aggravated statutory rape by the Dickson County Grand Jury last month.

Melissa Garcia was booked into the county jail two days after the indictment was handed down for the two counts of the felony, according to jail records.

Both incidents in which Garcia is charged took place between Jan. 1 and April 25 of this year, according to the indictment. Garcia is at least 10 years older than the minor, who is between the ages of 13 and 18, according to the document.

The district attorney’s office is not releasing additional information regarding the ongoing case, Assistant District Attorney Carey Thompson said.

Garcia remains in jail with a bond set at $10,000. She will have a trial set at a July 15 arraignment, Thompson said.
