SILER CITY — Daniel Kundig, 22, of Pittsboro, and his partner Cameron Rakes, 20, of Siler City, are both in law enforcement custody this week and have had their first court appearance in connection to a July report of statutory rape.
According to a press release from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office, deputies received a statutory rape report from the Siler City area on July 21. Investigators connected Kundig to the crime and initially charged him with two felony counts of statutory rape of an individual under the age of 16 and felony second-degree kidnapping.
But last month, sheriff’s office investigators found more evidence that Kundig had committed more crimes and charged him with including two counts of felony first degree forcible rape, two counts of felony indecent liberties with a child and two counts of sexual battery. The new charges led to a $500,000 bond for Kundig.
Investigators also arrested Rakes, described in the press release as Kundig’s partner. She has been charged with two counts of felony aiding and abetting indecent liberties, two counts of felony aiding and abetting first degree forcible rape, two counts of felony aiding and abetting the statutory rape of a child under the age of 16, two counts of aiding and abetting sexual battery and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She was assigned a $200,000 bond.
