Gravette, Arkansas Man Arrested for Rape, Cruelty to a Pig, and Sex Offender Violations

Gerald Leon Britton, an 80-year-old man from Gravette, Arkansas, was arrested on October 16 for allegedly raping a child, violating sex offender rules, and engaging in animal cruelty. Britton, a level three sex offender with a history of incest, was apprehended after an individual reported witnessing a child sitting on his lap with partially removed clothing. The child later disclosed that they had engaged in a game involving Britton’s genitals.

During the investigation, detectives discovered that Britton had failed to register seven devices, which is a violation of his sex offender status. Furthermore, a search warrant led to the discovery of a 200-pound pig in Britton’s bedroom closet. The pig exhibited overgrown front hooves and upper tusks that appeared to penetrate its own flesh, indicating neglect and animal cruelty.

Britton initially denied all allegations but later admitted to inappropriately touching the child, acknowledging multiple incidents. He is currently being held on a $500,000 bond and is scheduled for a hearing on November 20 in Benton County.
