Couple taped sex assault, say police

JONESBORO — A man and woman have been indicted in the November sexual assault of a young girl and recording of the attack, according to court records.

Darrika Shantel Driver, 31, of Jonesboro and Natavious Akeem Mays, 23, Atlanta are being held in Clayton County Jail. They face multiple charges of child molestation, aggravated child molestation, aggravated sodomy, first degree child cruelty and sexual exploitation of a child.

Driver is also charged with first degree child cruelty for leaving the girl unattended with Mays, who molested the girl previously and allegedly molested her again Nov. 14.

According to GBI Sex Offender Registry, Mays was convicted of child molestation in September 2011. He faces a separate charge of failing to register his address with authorities.

The indictment alleges Driver and Mays performed illicit acts on the girl and videotaped them.

A former Clayton County sheriff’s employee has been indicted on multiple counts of hindering the apprehension of a wanted criminal. Prosecutors said Silvia Guadalupe Oros failed to process an arrest warrant for Christian Daniel Santos and lied repeatedly to law enforcement officers in DeKalb and Clayton counties about not knowing where he was.

Two alleged gang members, one of whom is in state prison, have been indicted in the armed robbery and aggravated assault of a former gang member.

Javon Anthony Truss, 21, and Alphonso Amante Starr, 22, of Riverdale also face a charge of violating the Street Gang and Terrorism Prevention Act by allegedly being a member of Trey Bloods.

According to Georgia Department of Corrections, Truss was locked up April 23 on three counts of burglary and theft by taking. His maximum possible release date is Feb. 20, 2032. This is his second prison stay, having served from August 2011 to October 2012.

Two people have been indicted for possession of methamphetamine inside a home with five children. Michele Brooke Vining and Saul Sipriano Pereyraequihua face a drug charge and five counts of child deprivation.

Prosecutors allege the couple failed to keep a clean environment at the home on Boca Grande in Forest Park. They were arrested Sept. 30.

All suspects should be considered innocent until proven guilty.
