ALBANY, GA (WALB) - John Lee Hampton was convicted of beating, raping, and stabbing a Clearwater woman two years ago.

Last week, a Pinellas County jury recommended Hampton be sentenced to death. Hampton previously served an eleven year sentence in Georgia for child molestation in Turner County.

A sentence will be handed down at a later date.
