A 25-year-old Trenton man has been convicted of having a sexual relationship with a minor.  On April 16th, a Dade County Superior Court convicted James Clay Mayo of statutory rape, child molestation and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  The incident took place in late 2021, according to the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit District Attorney (DA).  At the time, Mayo was 23 and was having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old, according to the DA’s office. They added that Mayo met the teen over social media.  In February 2022, a deputy stopped Mayo’s vehicle to find a minor girl in the passenger seat, and the deputy claimed to smell alcohol coming from the vehicle.  The deputy also said Mayo had a picture of the girl on the dashboard of his vehicle. Mayo admitted to buying alcohol for the teen, but he denied being in a relationship with her.  At the time, deputies arrested Mayo for giving the minor alcohol.  The next day, a detective interviewed Mayo. Authorities said Mayo finally admitted to having a sexual relationship with the teen.  Authorities are still holding Mayo in the Dade County Jail while he awaits sentencing. The DA’s office says Mayo faces up to 20 years in prison.
