A Dawsonville man now faces charges for two crimes, one of which is a felony. 

The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office charged Richard Rolomas Landrum II, 52, with rape and driving under the influence. The alleged incidents occurred on separate days. 

A deputy responded to a “possibly impaired driver” at a residence off of Ga. 9 in Dawsonville around 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 3, according to an arrest report. 

At the time of his arrest, Landrum was driving his car with one passenger, a person over 98 years old. 

Two days later, DCSO issued a warrant for Landrum’s arrest regarding the rape charge. That alleged incident happened at the same residence sometime between 11 p.m. Halloween night and 7 a.m. the next day. 

No bond has been set for the rape charge. 

DCN staff will continue to report on this story as more information becomes available.
