Jury To Get Runions Case Today

HOHENWALD, TN- After almost 4 days of intense testimony, a Lewis County jury will get the case on Thursday.

Closing arguments in the emotionally charged case are expected today.

Runions was charged in 2017, with Continuous Sexual Abuse of A Child, Rape of a Child and Aggravated Sexual Battery.

The Lewis and Perry County Sheriff's Offices worked together in a sting operation using social media to reportedly have Runions meet an underage female.

Court documents show that when Runions arrived instead of finding a teen female, he was greeted by deputies.
