Plea deal reached in 2014 rape case

Dylan Hutchins

WASHINGTON COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – A Western Carolina University rugby player pleaded guilty earlier this month to a statutory rape charge stemming from a party held in 2014.

Dylan Hutchins was 22 when he was charged with raping a 17-year-old girl at a party in November 2014.

In January this year, Washington County Sessions Court Judge Don Arnold decided Hutchins should face four counts of aggravated rape in that case.

But Hutchins ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of statutory rape in a deal reached Oct. 16.

Hutchins was scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 6, 2016.
