Greenwood Man Found Not Guilty of Rape Charges
A Caddo Parish jury acquits a Greenwood man of aggravated rape charges.
34-year-old Paul Lee Bedgood was on trial for the aggravated rape of a girl under age 13. He was also facing a charge of indecent behavior with a juvenile. Bedgood was found not guilty on the aggravated rape charge, but the jury could not reach a verdict on the charge of indecent acts.
The alleged aggravated rapes happened between 2006 and 2009 and the alleged indecent behavior about 2015 or 2016. The victims were sisters.
Prosecutors have not yet determined whether they will try Bedgood again on the charge of indecent behavior with a juvenile under age 13.
