A Superior Court judge this morning handed down a life-plus sentence to a teen found guilty of attacking three women last year.
Cherokee Judicial Circuit District Attorney-elect Rosemary Greene said Jerry Jerome Kilgore, 18, received a sentence of life plus 205 years to be served in state prison.
Kilgore, who was charged with raping one woman and attempting to sexually assault another, was in connection with two home invasions. He previously had been arrested in connection with a robbery and assault at Pine Grove Church.
Superior Court Judge Carey Nelson sentenced Kilgore in connection with the July and August 2011 incidents following a four-day jury trial in November.
Greene said the jury "heard from numerous witnesses, including evidence of DNA and fingerprints being present."
