Vondale Lee Parker

A Dumas man suspected of soliciting two girls under the age of 14 to engage in sexual activity is being held in the Dumas jail on a $50,000 bond.

Vondale Lee Parker, 41, was arrested last week by Dumas Police for two counts of solicitation to commit rape.

The alleged offense is believed to have occurred on August 10 at an apartment complex in Dumas.

Solicitation to commit rape is a Class A  felony. Because Parker is a habitual offender and the children were under the age of 14, he faces six to  60 years prison and a maximum $15,000 fine for each count, if convicted.
