The Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office has announced the indictment of James Napier for the rape of two girls, ages 11 months and 9 years.

Napier stands indicted on 11 counts of Rape, and if convicted of all charges, faces the possibility of life in prison without parole. 

Napier, who is already facing Federal Charges in U.S. District Court for 23 charges involving child pornography, is now charged with the actual sex acts relating to those federal charges.  The children involved in this indictment were related to his girlfriends at the time.  Authorities became aware of Napier's activities when an FBI agent noticed suspicious online trading activity for child pornography and linked this activity to Napier.

Napier has previously been arraigned in U.S. District Court.  He is currently being held in the Boone County Jail under federal detention.  A court appearance in Hamilton County will occur when the federal charges are resolved. 

"There are no words to adequately describe this type of crime," said Prosecutor Joe Deters. "We will work with federal authorities to ensure that Napier gets the longest possible prison sentence.  The only way he should ever leave prison is feet first."
