JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A jury has convicted Jonathan Earl Doughtie of Kidnapping and two counts of Sexual Battery.
In July 2010, Doughtie raped two women, in a span of three days. Evidence showed Doughtie offered each woman a ride in his van. Once the victims were inside, Doughtie pulled a gun and then drove the victims to empty lots where he raped them at gunpoint.
“After over a year and a half, justice has finally been served for our victims in this case,” said Assistant State Attorney Erin Wolfson. Joel Cooper also tried the case.
Doughtie faces life in prison. He will be sentenced May 29, 2012.
