Today (8/13/21) a Lincoln County Jury found 20 year old Christian Igo guilty of Strangulation Constituting Domestic Violence, Furnishing Alcohol to a Person under 21, Sodomy in the First Degree, two counts of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree and two counts of Rape in the First Degree. In November 2020, Igo strangled and sexually assaulted his then 17 year old girlfriend after providing her with alcohol. During a multi day trial, the victim faced her abuser in court and described the intimate details about what Igo did to her.
The victim testified that she was strangled to unconsciousness and told the jury, "I thought I was going to die." After strangling the victim, Igo raped and sodomized her. Despite having to tell a courtroom full of strangers the most intimate and painful details of the assault, the victim remained strong and resilient on the witness stand. The jury deliberated for approximately two hours before rendering their verdict. Sentencing is scheduled for September 8th at 3:30 PM.
