LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – A man who was charged with first-degree rape in 2016 has been found not guilty.

Court records show Rorey George Otey, 41, was acquitted on a first-degree rape charge Friday.

Otey was initially arrested in April 2016 after the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office responded to a complaint at Athens-Limestone Hospital about a possible rape and assault on Segers Road earlier in the day.

Otey was also charged with third-degree domestic violence and was found guilty on that charge.

He will be sentenced on the domestic violence charge on Dec. 2.
