Meroney to Fight Rape Charges



Fox 13 anchor Ron Meroney, told a Shelby County judge yesterday that he plans to return to Maryland to face charges that he raped a young girl 30 years ago.

Meroney was arrested May 3rd after a Maryland grand jury returned indictments alleging he raped a girl under the age of 14 in 1974. Meroney was contesting a fugitive from justice charge in court, which will be dropped when Meroney turns himself into authorities in Maryland.

Meroney's attorney, Mark Messler, said Meroney wants to prove his innocence in court.
