Davis convicted of two counts of rape
Alton Kenny Davis has been convicted of two counts of rape in a bench trial July 6 in Carroll County Circuit Court.
It was alleged that Davis had sexual intercourse with a female on two occasions from December 2007 to January 2008 through the victim's mental incapacity.
The evidence at trial showed that Davis knew the victim through his employment as a van driver for a Wytheville company who would take the victim to her place of employment. After business hours, Davis picked up the victim in his personal car in Wythe County and drove her to Carroll County where the crimes occurred. Davis admitted having relations with her to officers of the Wythe County Sheriff's Department, but claimed the acts were consensual. A clinical psychologist testified the victim was severely handicapped and had a functioning level of a 3 to 5 year old child.
Circuit Court Judge Brett L. Geisler found the defendant guilty of both counts and ordered a pre-sentence report with sentencing set for Sept. 7. He granted Commonwealth's Attorney Gregory G. Goad's request to revoke the defendant's bond and he was remanded to the New River Valley Regional Jail. Davis faces other charges that are pending in Wythe County Circuit Court.
