Cody Lee Hardin is being held in the Ada County Jail on a felony rape charge after Ada County Sheriffs deputies say he gave a teenage girl alcohol and then had illegal sexual contact with her Wednesday night.
The 18-year-old Hardin will make his initial court appearance Monday afternoon.
Sheriffs deputies say Hardin and the girl, who were known to each other, were at a small outdoor get-together in Star on Wednesday night.
The girl, who is under the age of 18, contacted sheriffs officials Thursday morning about what happened. By Friday afternoon, deputies established the probable cause to charge Hardin with rape, according to reports.
The crime of rape is punishable by up to life in prison.
