On Monday a Caddo Parish Jury found 35 year old Rick Davis guilty of raping a five year old girl, now he faces the possibility of a death sentence. Prosecutors say Davis and his girlfriend both molested the little girl repeatedly, and that Davis would also promote prostitution among young teenaged girls. Davis' girlfriend testified against him over the weekend.
For the first time in Caddo Parish history the D.A's office will seek the death penalty for a rape case. The sentencing phase will begin at 9am Tuesday morning. Davis' defense attorney, Alan Golden says he hopes for a life sentence for his client.
