Man convicted of multiple sex crimes against a minor

After a two-day-long jury trial, a man has been convicted of 18 crimes, including aggravated sexual batter of a minor.

Raymond Uttaro has been found guilty of the following charges, according to Nelson County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Daniel Rutherford:

  • Four counts of aggravated sexual battery of a minor
  • Four counts of distributing oxycodone to a minor
  • Four counts of sodomy of a minor
  • Two counts of object sexual penetration of a minor
  • Two counts of carnal knowledge of a minor
  • One count of abduction with intent to defile a child under the age of 16
  • One count of sexual battery of a minor

We’re told these crimes occurred while the victim was 11 to 15 years old.

“My office shall vigorously prosecute every sexual offense of a minor. I am grateful for the dedication of my Victim’s Witness Advocate, Beth Phelps, and for the hard work of Sheriff Mark Embrey and the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office. Most important, it took a tremendous courage on behalf of the victim to come forward and testify before the jury.”

Uttaro will be sentenced on August 8, 2024.
