65 year old Jonathan Utin was
indicted by a Montgomery County grand

jury on 10 counts of statutory rape of
a 12 year old girl.

Utin taught math and science for
35 years at Blacksburg Middle School
before retiring.

The indictment alleges that the
abuse happened between June 1st 1970
and March 31st 1971.

The victim would now be 48 years
old.

Utin pleaded guilty last month in
Ohio to raping another 12 year old
girl.

He will be sentenced next week.

Commonwealth's Attorney Brad
Finch says he will bring Utin back to
Virginia as soon as possible.

Jason Spradlin's homecoming
yesterday had special meaning because
it's his second time back.

We first met Spradlin back in
20-04 when he came home for 30 days --
just long enough to see his newborn
son.

This time, his wife and two
children flew back into Roanoke by his
side-- they were in Germany while
Spradlin finished up his tour in Iraq.
