A convicted rapist left the Roane County Courthouse criminal courtroom handcuffed and crying Wednesday afternoon.
Darrell Wayne Griffin, 37, was charged with five counts of statutory rape by an authority figure.
He pleaded guilty to three of the five counts in March. The other two were dismissed.
Griffin was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday.
“He’s doing three years at 100 percent,” Assistant District Attorney General Bill Reedy said. “There’s no probation.”
