ATHENS — It took less than 30 minutes for a Henderson County jury to sentence Horace “Joe” Barker, 47, of Athens, to life in prison Friday morning after jurors convicted him of aggravated sexual assault late Thursday night. According to KETK and the Henderson County DA’s office, the conviction stems from the 2003 aggravated sexual assault of Barker’s six year old daughter. During sentencing, the jury heard evidence that Barker was previously convicted in 2007 of sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl and had physically abused several women with whom he’d had relationships over twenty years.
