Rainbow City Detectives say Jeffery Hopper raped a woman in an apartment in Rainbow City in July of last year. At the time of the incident evidence was taken to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences Lab in Hoover. A Combined DNA Index System search was performed at the lab and showed Hopper’s DNA was present.
Hopper is charged with two counts of first degree rape. He is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on a $50,000 surety bond.
