Jury settles on lesser charges in Motel room attack
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – A jury chose to convict Sean Fojaco on lesser charges from an incident at an East Ridge motel in 2018.
East Ridge Police had originally charged the 41 year old Fojaco with rape and false imprisonment of a 19 year old girl.
She was the daughter of a woman who went to the Super 8 Motel with Fojaco to study for a nursing exam the next day.
But her daughter told her that he attacked her.
However, a Hamilton County jury on Thursday settled on a lesser charge of misdemeanor assault and no false imprisonment.
Fojaco will be sentenced in two weeks.
