KNOXVILLE Tenn. – On December 7, 2020, Dusty William Oliver, 41, and Richard Graham, 49, both from Blaine, were sentenced by the Honorable Judge Thomas A. Varlan, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee at Knoxville, for raping two men in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP).
Oliver and Graham pleaded guilty to an indictment charging them with two counts of aggravated sexual abuse in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2241(a) and 2. Oliver was sentenced to 300 months in prison, followed by 15 years’ supervised release. Graham was sentenced to 230 months in prison, followed by 15 years’ supervised release. Both Oliver and Graham will be required to register with state sex offender registries and comply with special sex offender conditions during their supervised release.
In June 2012 and again in November 2015, Oliver and Graham raped two different male victims in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The defendants preyed on homeless, drug-addicted, heterosexual males, who they believed were unlikely to report their attacks to law enforcement. After quickly befriending their victims on the roadside in Knoxville, they took the victims to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Each victim was tricked into hiking unfamiliar trails in pitch darkness, whereon they were raped by both defendants at once.
The defendants escaped prosecution for their crimes until a tenacious investigation by special agents with the U.S. Department of Interior National Park Service in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park developed prosecutable cases against them. "The defendants exploited vulnerable victims; however, the victims were brave enough to come forward and report their attacks. The victims’ cooperation throughout the investigation and prosecution was necessary, and I commend them for seeing it through. The hefty sentences should serve as a warning to others that one will pay heavily for committing violent crimes in our national parks," said U.S. Attorney J. Douglas Overbey.
"I want to express my thanks to ISB investigators, park rangers, and the Blount County Sheriff’s Office for their perseverance and hard work that led to the conviction and sentencing of these two men responsible for heinous crimes within the park," said Superintendent Cassius Cash. "To ensure that we’ve heard the voices of all victims, investigators continue to welcome any information about additional assaults that may be associated with Graham and Oliver."
The criminal indictment was the result of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Interior National Park Service for the GSMNP.
Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Kolman represented the United States.
Vestiges of Deliverance....
Horrible assault and abuse. Just terrible.
On another note, nice to see on this official webpage a link to “Report COVID-19” crimes.” (Do I have to include a sarc tag?)
The liberal media of Sodom will pass this totally or very lightly.
Whoopie says it wasn’t “Rape Rape”.
I hear banjos.....
“Deliverance.”. Life imitates art.
You hear Banjos? too?
But, were they able to cast multiple votes for Biden/Harris in November. That's the important thing here. /sarc
Quite some time ago, there was a woman from Kalifornia that praised a couple of homos that arranged to meet men in parks by pretending to be underage boys. They then raped the creeps that showed up, figuring they wouldn’t report the crime. I had trouble convincing her that they weren’t noble heroes, but just another breed of sexual predator.
They raped filthy hobos?
“It’s just about love!”
” I had trouble convincing her that they weren’t noble heroes, but just another breed of sexual predator.”
She’s just another Rapist/Fraud/Pedophile/Whore supporter.
Sentenced in U.S. District Court. Not eligible for parole under Federal law, the most they can get is a 10% reduction in sentence for good behavior. They’re in for a long stay in prison either way.
That movie could NEVER be made in today’s Hollywood..............
I know freepers ....folks who rarely read the article love to indulge Hollywood fantasies .....albeit pretty far fetched ones
It kind of disgusts me that folks on a forum who judge themselves as informed are more often than not woefully uninformed but what saves them is their politics are more often than not reasonable
And they were valley folks not toppers
The notion that hillbillies are prone to be rapist faggots is just about as non fact based a notion as Hollywood or James Dickey...not a nice man...could envision.
Appalachian folks constantly maligned are pretty solid folks who believe in Christ and vote right
These two faggot rapists were in fact a dandy couple and one even professed to be transitioning
Hardly your toothless man raping Hollywood stereotype
Sexual predation is often a fact of male homosexuality , but the media likes the toothless hillbilly stereotype better
No parole or time-off for good behavior in the federal system.
