Tourist Rapist Pleads Guilty

Posted By on Tue, Mar 8, 2011 at 12:53 PM

Stanley Pearson, 26, recently pleaded guilty to aggravated rape stemming from an assault on a downtown Memphis tourist in October 2009, announced the Shelby County District Attorney's office Tuesday morning.

A grand jury returned the indictment on Pearson on March 3rd, and Pearson agreed to an 18-year sentence. Pearson is required to serve all 18 years of his sentence.

On October 3, 2009, Pearson encountered a British female tourist at the corner of Second and Vance downtown. He offered to help the woman find the nearest library, but instead led her to a vacant building at Second and Butler. That's when Pearson forcibly raped and robbed the woman.
