The victim’s mother had never met Perkins prior to the attack. The lady who owns the house where they were staying told WERG –
Perkins is currently at large, but he did send the victim’s mother a message to her mobile Facebook page stating the following:
“Please take them charges off of me. I didn’t know she was young. I was drunk. I’ll pay you to stop the charges.”
Authorities with the Jackson Police Department stated, “They’ll be used as evidence.”
Perkins has had several brushes with the law, including drug and robbery charges. In light of his current and past legal troubles, Perkins further stated in his Facebook confession, “I’m not a bad person.”
