Police search for man convicted of incest | News
ALBERTVILLE, AL (WAFF)- Authorities in Marshall County are searching for a man convicted of having sex with his mother.
Having pleaded to incest charges, the suspect was expected to be in court for sentencing but failed to show.
Arrest warrants are being issued for 25-year-old Gary Dean Helms Jr.
Helms failed to show in court Monday where he was facing a prison sentence up to 10 years.
Helms pleaded guilty in September, 2011 to incest charges. He was initially charged with rape in 2006.
Albertville Police said at the time Helms forcibly raped his mother, who was intoxicated and passed out on the couch of their home.
Police believe the attack was because Helms was angry with his brother over a female friend.
Helms' mother later claimed she forgave her son but said it was consensual.
