SHEPHERDSVILLE - A man has entered an Alford plea on six counts of rape.
Rodney Allen Sparks, 45, of Shepherdsville, entered a plea recently to a 14-year sentence on the various counts.
Commonwealth Attorney Michael Mann said he would object to any probation or alternative sentence.
However, because of the violent nature of the crime, Sparks would not be eligible and must serve 85 percent of the sentence before being considered for parole.
