Student paid for sex

FAYETTEVILLE Detectives did not identify the girl or say what school she attends.

Jeffery Brent Godwin, Sr., 40, of Deep Creek Road, is charged with two counts of statutory rape, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, two counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor, and five counts of facilitating the prostitution of a minor.

He works in the mailroom of the Cumberland County School System’s headquarters on Gillespie Street.

Investigators say Godwin would pick up his 15-year old victim at her home and drive to a local motel. He paid her differing amounts of money to have sex with him. The pair also allegedly had sex in his truck at a remote location out in the country. The encounters began in December, 2007 and continued until this spring.

Godwin is being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $110,000 bond. A first court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday.
