Police in Georgia are looking for 34-year-old Bo Dukes, who is wanted for allegedly holding two women at gunpoint and raping them, but the police aren’t the only ones looking for him. Federal authorities are also looking to bring him to justice.
Dukes has a criminal history that makes many wonder how he was not in jail to begin with. Dukes was one of two men who were charged with the murder of Tara Grinstead, his former high school teacher in 2005. The case has not yet gone to trial, but essentially Duke is accused of helping the alleged murderer, Ryan Alexander Duke, with covering up the crime.
Then there’s the federal charges against Duke for conspiring with his wife to steal over $150,000 worth of property from the United States Army. He had been let go on the condition of supervised release but failed to pay his restitution or perform community service. For this he was ordered to six months in prison but was not given a date to turn himself in by the court.
On Tuesday, January 1st, 2019, Dukes allegedly held two women at gunpoint at his home in Georgia. He is alleged to have committed rape, aggravated sodomy, false imprisonment, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Because of the rape allegations against Duke, the federal judge is revoking the order initially set that Duke surrender voluntarily. He is still at large.
