Man Pleads Guilty to MU Rape

It took nearly 14 years, but the man behind a rape at an MU dorm has admitted he was behind the crime.

KMIZ reports 47-year-old Marvin Jones of Columbia pleaded guilty Monday in connection to the 1999 rape at Gillett Hall.

Jones was arrested by campus police last November. The Highway Patrol’s crime lab identified a DNA sample from Jones that matched a sample found on the victim 13 years earlier.

Sentencing is scheduled for early July. Prosecutors want Jones to serve 30 years for forcible sodomy and another 30 years for forcible rape.
