Mark A. Wakefield has been arraigned in Grays Harbor Superior Court on the charge of Child Rape. Bail was set at $100,000.
Det. Perkinson from the Aberdeen Police Investigations Section was assigned this case last week and began his investigation. The accusations involved a juvenile female. The rapes occurred over several years with a pattern of sexual abuse. Recent correspondence from Wakefield confirmed the suspicions and prompted a disclosure from the juvenile victim. Wakefield was visiting the Harbor from Alaska and started the correspondence prior to coming back to Grays Harbor. The investigations developed probable cause to arrest the suspect.
