Former deputy convicted of rape

A 28-year-old mother of three says she is looking forward to the first undisturbed sleep since she accused then-Deputy Phillip Wayne Armstrong of raping her after a drunken driving stop on June 11, 1994.

Armstrong, 30, was convicted Thursday of rape after a three-day trial that pitted his word against hers.

She said the 270-pound deputy raped her after taking her to her apartment under arrest and forcing her 107-pound frame onto her bed. Armstrong said the woman wanted to have sex with him to avoid arrest.

The jurors believed her. He faces between 6{ and 10{ years in prison under sentencing guidelines.
