EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - An Evansville man found guilty of attempted rape has now been sentenced.

Officials with the prosecutor’s office say 47-year-old James Snapp was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

At the end of his three-day trial in September, jurors found 47-year-old James Snapp guilty of attempted rape, criminal confinement and felony battery resulting in serious bodily injury.

Vanderburgh County Deputy Prosecutor Emily Hall and Deputy Prosecutor Jeremy Kemper were in charge of the investigation, alongside Evansville Police Detective Stacy Spalding.

“We are certainly appreciative that the jurors took this matter extremely serious and returned a verdict where Mr. Snapp must take responsibility for his decisions,” explained Vanderburgh County Deputy Prosecutor Emily Hall.
