A shocking crime in Alabama.
Police in Albertville say 19-year-old Gary Helms, Junior is charged with raping his 45-year-old mother.
Police say he did it to seek revenge against his brother after the two argued over a girlfriend.
The police report says Helms' mother was passed out drunk on the couch when the rape started.
She came to and recognized her son during the attack.
The police report says his mother tried to get away but Helms held her down until he was finished.
Albertville police Sergeant James Smth says Helms confessed to the attack and was ordered held in the Marshall County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
"From what we understand the rape stemmed from an argument between him and his brother. And apparently they were arguing over a girlfriend. And the rape was some sort of retaliation towards his brother ... it's just pretty much a shock to the conscious of the general public."
