Trower Sentenced To Life In Prison

Todd Trower will spend the rest of his life behind bars for the 1998 rape of a 5-year-old Pascagoula girl.

The sentence came down Thursday after a little more than an hour of jury deliberations.

Officials say 37-year-old Trower broke into the girl's home, kidnapped and raped her, then dropped her off at a Walmart parking lot.

Trower was convicted of burglary, kidnapping and capital rape. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 75 years.

Jackson County District Attorney Tony Lawrence says this was the fourth time Trower went to trial and hopefully the last.

Trower was convicted of the same crime in 2001, but it was overturned.

The victim's father says he was relieved to hear the verdict. He says he hopes this is the end and Trower never gets the chance to hurt anyone else.
