The jury in District Judge John D. Mosely Jr.'s court deliberated for more then three hours before returning with a guilty verdict of third-degree rape against 35-year-old Rory Chevalier Pipkin.
Evidence in the case showed that between January of 2017 through early June of 2019, Pipkin lived with his girlfriend and her minor daughter in an apartment in Shreveport. Pipkin would often babysit the young girl when the child's mother went to work. During those times, Pipkin forced the child into sex acts.

Jurors heard testimony from the victim, her grandmother, experts in the field of child abuse pediatrics and forensic examination, the Gingerbread House examiner and the case detective before returning with the guilty verdict.
Pipkin is due back in court on May 14 for formal sentencing. He could face up to 25 years in prison without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.
He will also be required to register as a sex offender for life upon his release from prison.  However, the defendant is subject to enhanced penalties as a habitual offender, which prosecutors plan to pursue.
