Porter Convicted of Raping his 16 Month Old Son
After 30 minutes of deliberations, a Lawrence County jury has found Simon Porter guilty of Aggravated Rape of a Child and Aggravated Child Abuse. A sentencing hearing will be held on April 3, in Lawrenceburg. Mr. Porter faces a possible sentence of 40 - 85 years in prison. Mr. Porter was charged with raping his 16 month old son.
I want to thank the Investigators with the Lawrenceburg Police Department, ADA Emily Crafton, and my hard working Victim Witness Coordinators for helping us present this very difficult case to the jury this week. I also want to express my joy for the young victim and his new family, in that they may now move on and live in peace and safety.
