Local man faces over 40 counts of sex offense

A Bethlehem man is facing over 40 charges of sexual offenses in a case where investigators say the crimes took place over a period of eight years.

Alexander County Sheriff Chris Bowman told The Times Monday, Oct. 13, that investigators had received information about a possible sexual assault to a juvenile. During their investigation, evidence led to the arrest of James Randall Holston, age 58 of Foothill Drive in the Bethlehem Community.

Holston was arrested on Friday, October 10, and charged with 40 counts of first degree statutory sexual offense and two counts of indecent liberties with a minor. He was placed in the Alexander County Detention Center under a $1 million bond.

Bowman said that Holston had a first court appearance in Alexander County District Court on Monday, October 13. 

The victim in all these crimes was the same person, said Bowman, and the alleged offenses took place over a period of about eight years. The investigation is continuing.
