Two Men Plead Guilty to Raping Men in the GSMNP

Two Tennessee men who preyed on homeless drug addicts luring them into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park to rape them will spend decades in prison.

The assaults occurred in 2012 and 2015. 41-year-old Dusty Oliver and 49-year-old Richard Graham pleaded guilty to two counts of Aggravated Sexual Abuse and were sentenced to 25 and nearly 20 years in prison.

Investigators say the men befriended their victims then took them to unfamiliar trails in the park, believing their victims wouldn’t report the crime.
