Trial for a man accused of raping a teenage girl in Opp starts today...

Covington county deputies say Russell S. Griggs of Rose Hill is charged with raping a 15 year old girl last June.

Deputies say they received the call from the victim's mother claiming Griggs was raping her daughter in the restroom.

When authorities arrived, Griggs had fled the scene. Helicopter and K-9 units were able to track him down later that night in a field.

Alabama News Network will bring you the latest on the judge's verdict.
