Edmonson Co. Rape Case Verdict

A Tennessee man is found guilty of rape in Edmonson County. The circuit court jury found 64-year-old Earl Vincent Junior guilty of 29 counts of first degree rape, first degree sodomy, first degree sexual abuse and incest.

Vincent committed these acts against three family members between 1973 and 1998.

He was sentenced to 50 years in prison which State Police Sergeant John Clark said amounts to a, “life sentence to Mr. Vincent.”

Vincent was living in Ripley, Tenn., when he was arrested.
