The victim is a family member and was between the ages of 3 years old to 12 years old. From The Daily Beast:
The TBI began investigating Willis on August 29 after receiving information that Willis had a sexual encounter about 12 years ago with an underage child, according to a police statement issued after Willis’s arrest. In Tennessee the charge of child rape applies to the sexual assault of children between the ages of 3 and 12.
Nashville’s Newschannel5 reported Wednesday night that Willis had allegedly been charged with raping a family member. It said the family member had been “removed by Willis from her bed and raped.” It also reported that “authorities confirmed Willis was not allowed to go around his biological children or his wife.”
His wife, Brenda, has issued a statement that she and the family fully support the district attorney’s office in this action. Their family band has cancelled all upcoming dates for the foreseeable future to focus on the well being of the children. What this means for the family remains to be seen as they had recently lost their rental home and had stated they were going to live on their tour bus.
Apparently there’s also been some odd behavior by Toby Willis that happened right before his arrest. He wasn’t traveling with the rest of the family to gigs in Kentucky, but was hitchhiking to get there. Law enforcement is seeking to talk to anyone that may have given him a ride recently.
Willis is being held without bond in Nashville Tennessee until his first hearing on Sept. 21. More as this story evolves.
