A Wayne County, Kentucky man was sentenced in circuit court yesterday on multiple charges of sodomy, incest and rape. Court officials say 40-year-old John R. Fawcett of Monticello plead guilty to three counts of first degree sodomy, six counts of incest and three counts of first degree rape. The guilty plea was in exchange for a sentence of 20 years on each count to all run concurrent for a total of 20 years to serve. John Fawcett was arrested in Panama City, Florida after fleeing Wayne County. Earlier this year, his wife 33-year-old Jacqueline Fawcett was sentenced to 15 years in prison for her role in the incidents. She was charged with six counts of incest and three counts each of sodomy and rape. The victim in the incident was a child under the age of 12.
