I have received word that 37 year old Kevin Scott Walker who was accused of raping a 25 year old woman last Summer near the sports complex in Arcata has lost his Humboldt County jury trial. He has reportedly been sentenced to18 years in prison.
The rape he was accused of took place on July 5th. 2010 in some woods just yards away from where a baseball game was taking place.
According to the Times-Standard, In 2008,
Walker and the other assailant, Collin Roczey, were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, sexual assault and kidnapping, and later pleaded guilty to the assault charge in a plea agreement carrying a prison sentence between two and four years.
