A Kay County jury has convicted Deer Creek resident Randy Dale Parson, 39, of kidnapping, rape and attempted murder of a 19-year-old Ponca City woman on Sept. 29, 2003.

The jury recommended sentences ranging from 5 to 25 years on each felony charge for a total of 165 years if run consecutively.

Formal sentencing in the case is set for July 28.

"We are very pleased with these convictions," said Kay County District Attorney Mark L. Gibson in a prepared statement. "Randy Parson is an incredibly violent and dangerous man. It is hard to imagine a worse crime than this one, short of murder. I commend the officers in this case and my assistant D.A., Tara Doty, for their professional handling of this case."
