On October 23, Michael Whitted, 33, of Stafford, was indicted at a special grand jury hearing in Stafford County Circuit Court. He was indicted on three counts of rape and two counts of carnal knowledge of a child between thirteen and fifteen years of age.

In February 2019, detectives learned of a possible sexual assault victim while conducting an unrelated investigation. Detectives contacted the victim who reported she had been sexually assaulted multiple times by Whitted when she was a juvenile. The crimes occurred in Stafford between 2004 and 2005 when the victim was 14 years-of-age. Whitted was a family acquaintance at the time.

Whitted was indicted while incarcerated on previous convictions. He was initially scheduled to be released in November on those convictions.
