Limestone County rape trial of Austin Clem underway

Posted: Updated:

A man charged with multiple sex crime charges, all allegedly involving the same victim, now faces a judge and jury. The Limestone County trial for Austin Smith Clem began Tuesday.

Investigators said Clem had sex with and made sexual contact with a girl who was older than 12 years old but younger than 16 in 2007. For that, he is charged with second-degree rape and two counts of sexual abuse.

They said Clem also raped her in 2011 when she was older the 16. He is charged with first-degree rape for that alleged assault. He was arrested last November after a year-long investigation by the Athens Police Department.
