A Lewisburg firefighter is accused of raping a child, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said their investigation into allegations of sexual battery and rape of a child led to the indictment of Justin Barron.

In September 2021, agents began investigating Barron following allegations he sexually assaulted a child. Agents determined Barron had sexual contact with an underage female in the summer of 2020.

This week the case was presented to the Marshall County Grand Jury, which returned indictments charging Justin Russell Barron with one count of Aggravated Sexual Battery and one count of Rape of a Child.

He was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Marshall County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
