ATLANTA — After a brief trial, a man was convicted Wednesday of raping a woman behind an Atlanta baptist church. Kristopher Roberson, 38, was convicted of rape, aggravated assault and false imprisonment.
On August 8, 2014, the victim was walking along Smith Street in Atlanta when a gold Jeep pulled up beside her. The Jeep came to a stop and prosecutors said Roberson exited the vehicle. Wielding a knife, Roberson allegedly forced the victim into the Jeep and then drove to the Mt. Moriah Primitive Baptist Church on Joseph E. Boulevard.
