Florida convict pleads guilty to 1980s rapes in Tennessee

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A convict serving a life sentence in Florida for sex crimes has pleaded guilty to two rapes in Tennessee from more than 30 years ago. Shelby County prosecutors say 55-year-old Jimmy Love pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of aggravated rape at a hearing in Memphis. Love was brought to Memphis from the Hardee Correctional Institution in Bowling Green, Florida, in order to face the charges. He apologized to one victim at the hearing. Prosecutors said DNA evidence matched Love to the 1986 rape of a woman in the Raleigh neighborhood in Memphis. His DNA also linked him to a 1987 rape.
