Asa Rueben South will be sentenced tomorrow after being found guilty last week for third degree sexual abuse.
The abuse stems from an assault which took place in Knoxville in August of 2016. Knoxville officers responded to a call of an assault that had taken place. Upon arrival, officers were told by an adult female that South had sexually assaulted and beaten her. South’s sentencing hearing will begin tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. inside the Marion County Courthouse. He faces a 10-year mandatory prison sentence, and must register as a sex offender upon release.
