Stoken Behind Bars

A fugitive from justice is back in jail tonight after his picture appeared on News 4.

Derwin Stokes' employer in Dothan called police after seeing his photo on our newscast Tuesday night.

The 40-year-old Ariton man is in the Coffee County jail facing a charge of one count of sodomy.

Stokes allegedly attacked a 16-year-old girl last Sunday while she slept at a home in the Goodman community.

Authorities say Stokes may also be charged as a sex felon who has not registered with local law enforcement.
