They acquitted him! I cannot believe it. Here is the story from my local news station. Hinson found not guilty, but still faces a federal charge 4/23/2007 2:06:55 PM A South Carolina man accused of raping two teen girls in an underground bunker has been found not guilty of kidnapping, sex crimes and assault with intent to kill. Kenneth Hinson was found not guilty on all 6 charges against him. Jurors deliberated for four and half hours today before reaching that decision. Hinson appeared to shed tears before the verdict came down. He was charged with kidnapping and raping two teenage girls in an underground room he built last March. As he left the courtroom Hinson told reporters, "The verdict said it all. They robbed me of everything I own." The accusers and their families were visibly upset and cried over the verdict. Attorney General Henry McMaster told us he's very disappointed and believes the state presented a very good case against Hinson. Hinson is not a free man just yet, he's now in federal custody because police say he had a gun on him when arrested last March. He's a convicted felon and is not supposed to have a gun. We're told because of his prior record he could face life in prison. He still faces burglary charges in this case. The state could also file drug trafficking charges against because he admitted under oath that he sold and transported drugs. Right now he's in jail at the Darlington County Detention Center.
