Man Found Guilty In 2010 Kidnapping, Rape Of Teenage Girl

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Nashville man who cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet while on bond was found guilty for the rape of a teenage girl.

A jury in Davidson County found 44-year-old Cedric Jones guilty of three counts of aggravated rape, one count of aggravated sexual battery and one count of aggravated kidnapping.

Jones was originally scheduled to go on trial May 2012, but he failed to appear in court. Officials said he was free on $200,000 bond when he removed the bracelet and ran from authorities.

His bond was revoked and the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force was called in to help in the search.

Officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department were able to take Jones back into custody on May 16, 2012.

Susan Niland with the Davidson County District Attorney's office said Jones was accused of taking the 14-year-old victim to a storage facility where he raped her and held her overnight.

The attack happened in March 2010.

A sentencing hearing was scheduled for April 23.
