A Madison County man is being held on a $20,000 bond after being arraigned Thursday on a rape charge, according to a Thursday afternoon news release from the Jackson Police Department.

Police said Christopher Stanfill, 27, was charged with raping a 22-year-old Jackson man inside Stanfill’s home. He was arraigned in Madison County General Sessions Court Thursday morning and is scheduled to appear in court next at 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 10.
Stanfill continued to be held at the Madison County Jail Thursday night.

According to Tennessee Code Annotated 39-13-503, rape is a Class B felony.

Police said around 8 a.m. Wednesday, a 22-year-old Jackson man called police to his home. The man told officers that he and Stanfill were out drinking Tuesday night and later went to Stanfill's home on Mifflin Road in Madison County.

The man said he fell asleep and was awakened by Stanfill performing a sex act on him without his consent.

Police said Stanfill came to the police department around 2:40 p.m. Wednesday for questioning and further investigation revealed that Stanfill had committed the crime.

Stanfill was transported to the Madison County Jail, where he awaited his Thursday morning arraignment.
Police said this case was investigated by the Jackson Police Department’s Special Investigations Bureau with assistance from the Madison County Sheriff's Office.
