Guilty verdict in child rape trial

Posted: Updated:

A Davidson County jury last night found William Edward Arnold of Nashville guilty of three counts of rape of a child, and one count of aggravated sexual battery of a boy he was mentoring through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Arnold had mentored the boy for a couple of years. The molestation started when the boy was 10 years old, and took place when Arnold and the boy were alone in Arnold's vehicle and home.

When the boy told his mother what happened, she reported it to police.

The trial began Monday, and the jury came back after 11 p.m. Friday with its verdict.

Arnold's sentencing date has not yet been set.
