A man who raped a college student in Putnam County and later tried to strangle her with jumper cables in Roane County will serve 25 years in prison.
Waford Knight Bryant was sentenced in Putnam County Criminal Court on Monday.
“We talked to the victim and her family, and everybody was pleased with the resolution,” said Tony Craighead, a prosecutor with the 13th Judicial District.
Bryant lived in the same apartment complex as the victim in Putnam County.
