A verdict is in for the rape trial of a former Evansville business owner. On Wednesday, a jury found Edward Meiggs guilty of one count of rape but not guilty on two other rape counts.

This stemmed from allegations made in 2015. The alleged victim was a client at Meiggs’ business, Evansville Metaphysics, which has since shut down.

The victim, her family, and the prosecutors say they were pleased with Wednesday’s ruling.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 10.
