Recently, Clarksville resident Sammy James Hale, a convicted rapist, took a plea agreement to serve 10 years in Tennessee Sate Prison. Hale was originally charged with 4 child rape, 3 attempted child rape, 7 aggravated sexual battery counts and one for soliciting sexual exploitation of a child. Since Hale is a Range One Offender with some time served, he could be eligible for parole in less than 2 ½ years under Tennessee law.
