Hixson man pleads to lesser charge
Original charges have been dismissed against Raymond Nicholas Phillips.
He was originally facing a 2009 rape charge, after investigators say he admitted to raping an 18- year-old girl after she passed out from drinking.
But Phillips pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of sexual battery and was given a 2-year suspended sentence.
The Hixson man had also been accused of sexual battery of a 10-year-old boy.
