MAN GUILTY OF RAPING CHILD
Tony Randall McKinney, a 40-year-old Guilford Township man, is accused of raping a 6-year-old boy. He pleaded guilty to one count of rape as part of a plea bargain. The plea was entered after prosecutors agreed to drop the charged for a sexual predator specification, which carries a life sentence. The rape charge, a first-degree felony, carries a penalty of three to 10 years in prison. According to the Beacon Journal, in the deal, attorneys agreed to a seven-year sentence, but prosecutors say they will recommend that McKinney be labeled a sexual predator. If he is ruled a predator, he would have to register his residency with the local sheriff's department for life wherever he lives and the department would be required to notify neighbors and schools of his status.
