A Jonesborough man will serve 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty this week to raping a former girlfriend’s six-year-old daughter.


Josh Theall, 30, was originally charged with nine counts of rape of a child in the case, but in a plea agreement Tuesday between his attorney, Matt Bolton, and Assistant District Attorney General Erin McArdle, four counts were dismissed.


Theall entered a best interest plea, which means he didn’t admit guilt but agreed that prosecutors had sufficient evidence for a jury to find him guilty.
