Shawn Corbally, 34, was found guilty on all eight counts of rape, burglary, criminal confinement and criminal deviate conduct Thursday.

Corbally brutally raped of a Greenwood woman at her apartment in July of 2012.The jury reached a verdict in less than two hours.

Johnson County Prosecutor Brad Cooper said strong DNA evidence and witness testimony made it easy for the jury to make a quick decision.

“The DNA was conclusive that he (Corbally) had raped her and repeatedly sodomized her. I think that speaks volumes as to why this jury came back on eight separate counts– Six A Felonies and two B Felonies — in less than two hours,” said Cooper

The victim, who Fox59 News is choosing not to identify, said it was tough to be in court, but she knew it was something she had to do.

“It was extremely tough being in the same room with him having him snarl at me, look at me, but I just gave him daggers right back and smiled at him. Have fun, you’ll be sitting there forever,” said the woman.

The woman said justice was served.

“I am extremely pleased with the jury. I’m just so glad that this cretin is off the streets and can’t hurt anybody else,” said the woman.

Corbally told FOX59 News he was sorry he dragged his family’s name through the mud.

He faces a maximum of 340 years behind bars. Sentencing is scheduled for March 18 at the Johnson County Courthouse.
