Man found guilty of rape after two day trial

Matthew Parker, 38, was convicted of two felony counts of rape and one charge each of felony aggravated indecent assault, corruption of minors and child endangerment, and three counts of misdemeanor indecent assault, by the jury of nine men and three women.

After hearing the verdict, Judge William Shaffer revoked Parker’s $200,000 bail and ordered him to be committed to the Butler County Prison until sentencing. Shaffer also granted the prosecution’s request for Parker to be evaluated by Sexual Offenders Assessment Board within the next 90 days.

The District Attorneys office tells Butler News that a sentence of 20-40 years will be asked for upon sentencing.
