Suspect Arrested in Osburn Rape Investigation

SHOSHONE COUNTY, Idaho - The Shoshone County Sexual Assault Task Force has made an arrest in a rape that took place on July 30th, 2010. Late Tuesday night the task force took Justin H. Smith into custody at a residence in Osburn. Wednesday afternoon, Smith appeared in court and was formally charged with one count of Rape.

District Court Judge Patrick McFadden found probable cause to believe the alleged crime has occurred and that Smith is the person that committed the crime. Bail was set at $300,000 and a No Contact Order was signed, which means Smith can have no contact with the victim. The order will remain in effect for one year or until the case is dismissed.

The Shoshone County Sexual Assault Task Force wants to remind all residents of the Silver Valley that personal safety is still a serious concern and the fact that this suspect is in jail should not be seen as a reason to think that there is no longer any danger of this type of crime occurring in the area. They are asking everyone to please be aware of their surroundings at all times, avoid isolated areas, avoid dimly lit areas, and whenever possible, to not travel alone.
