VALDOSTA, GA - A Valdosta man who's served ten years in prison has been found not guilty on two of three charges in a retrial.
47-year-old Bernard Arnold pleaded guilty to rape, kidnapping and possession of a firearm a decade ago.
He was sentenced to 35 years in prison and six years probation for kidnapping and raping a woman in the 700 block of East Jane Street.
He appealed that conviction and was granted a new trial this week.
Thursday, a jury found him guilty of the kidnapping charge but not guilty of the other two.
He will remain in the Lowndes County jail until he is re-sentenced.
