GREEN VALLEY - A registered sex offender already behind bars was arrested for allegedly raping a mentally handicapped woman.

David Neal Martin, 44, of the Green Valley area is charged with four counts of third-degree sexual assault and four counts of second-degree sexual abuse.

Corporal Steven Sommers with the Sheriff's Department said an investigation began in May regarding the sexual abuse of the 22 year-old woman. He believes Martin and the victim were acquaintances.

Martin had already been in jail on unrelated charges for sex offender violations when authorities arrested him on June 11, according to Sommers.

Martin’s preliminary hearing scheduled for Wednesday was continued, according to Sommers. Martin is in Southern Regional Jail on $50,000 cash bond.
