WALLA WALLA -- A local man faces two rape charges in Walla Walla County Superior Court.
Joshua A. Rutherford, 19, was booked into the County Jail on Tuesday.
He is charged with second-degree rape for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old girl against her will in the summer of 2009.
He also faces a charge of third-degree rape of a child, accusing him of having sex with a girl who was 14 years old last summer.
Both of the alleged crimes -- which hadn't been reported to police until last spring -- took place at a residence in the area of the Walla Walla County Fairgrounds, according to police.
Rutherford, of 1909 Garrison St., was acquainted with both of the girls, officials said.
The charges were filed Aug. 2. Bail on each case was set at $50,000.
