No, he’s not my neighbor, but it makes one wonder about who one’s neighbors are. Always good to check with the state police.
Sex offender not guilty of dungeon rapes.
? Kenneth Hinson took stand, denied raping two teens in underground room
? Hinson was convicted of raping a 12 year old girl in 1991
? Hinson faced mandatory life sentence if convicted
DARLINGTON, South Carolina (AP) – A jury has acquitted a convicted sex offender of charges he raped two teen girls in an underground bunker.
The jury found Kenneth Glenn Hinson, 48, not guilty not guilty of kidnapping, sex crimes and assault with intent to kill.
Hinson wiped his eyes and mouth and appeared to cry after the jury read its verdict, which followed about four hours of deliberations over two days.
“I think the verdict says it all,” he said as he was escorted from the courtroom.
Authorities had charged that Hinson snatched the 17-year-old girls from their bedroom last year and dragged them one at a time to the underground room hidden beneath a tool shed, where he raped and bound them with duct tape. Prosecutors said Hinson expected the girls to die because the room had no air supply.
If convicted, Hinson had faced a mandatory life sentence without parole under the state’s two-strikes law because he was convicted of raping a 12-year-old girl in 1991."
