BEAUFORT, S.C.---The man who kidnapped and raped a 14-year-old girl in a dungeon is probably headed for prison for the rest of his life.
Vinson Filyaw pleaded guilty today just before his trial was set to begin in Beaufort.
The crime happened last year in Kershaw County. The girl was rescued after she sent her mother a text message a week after the abduction.
If the judge stacks the eleven guilty pleas, Filyaw could receive a sentence of more than 300 years.
