Joseph Tyler Pitts

A University of Alabama student accused of raping a teenage girl in a dorm room has been arrested.

Joseph Tyler Pitts, 19, was charged with first-degree rape on Sunday.

The 18-year-old female victim, who is also a student at the university, told police she had been drinking with Pitts on Saturday night when she lost consciousness.


The victim was awakened by two friends after they came into a room and allegedly saw Pitts having sex with the unconscious girl.

She told investigators about the incident at DCH Regional Medical Center early Saturday.

Pitts is being held at the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $30,000 bond.

It’s not clear if Pitts has an attorney.

So many lessons to be gleamed from this story.
