John Paul Little might never be a free man again.
On Thursday, a Roane County jury found him guilty on four counts of child rape.
“Whenever we get one of these and get a guilty verdict, it’s all such a relief,” Assistant District Attorney General Bob Edwards said.
Little was indicted on four counts of child rape in 2013. His trial started Wednesday at the Roane County Courthouse and finished Thursday.
The victim, who said she was 5 years old when Little first raped her, testified on Wednesday.
