AZEWELL, Tenn. (AP) -- A jury in Tazewell convicted a Claiborne County man of raping and torturing his teenage daughter with an animal shock collar.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reported the verdicts were returned Tuesday against the man, who is not being named to protect his daughter's identity.
The then- 17 year-old girl told a school resource officer at Cumberland Gap High School last year that her father used shock collars on her that he also used to train dogs.
Capt. Sam Nelson of the Claiborne County Sheriff's office said the rapes came to light during the abuse investigation.
Assistant District Attorney Amanda Sammons told the News Sentinel jurors returned guilty verdicts on 11 counts of rape, 11 counts of incest and three counts of aggravated child abuse.
Sammons said the man's wife is awaiting trial on aggravated child abuse charges because she did nothing to stop the girl's abuse.
