Caroline Neal takes plea deal in sexual assault case

  • Follow Crime & courts

A deal between Caroline Neal and the district attorney’s office will allow her to plead guilty to furnishing alcohol to a person under the age of 21 and will drop a charge of rape.

Neal and her ex-husband, Joe Neal Jr., were indicted in March on those charges after a 18-year-old baby sitter accused them of sexual assault in December.

The case went to trial two weeks ago, but Joe Neal abruptly accepted a plea bargain after a morning of testimony from the accuser detailed sexually explicit text messages between him and the teenager the day after the alleged rape. He received three years’ probation and 100 hours of community service at a sewage plant for his guilty plea to three misdemeanors.

Caroline Neal was scheduled to testify at her ex-husband’s trial. The accuser said Caroline Neal invited her over to their house on Kings Way for “girl talk” and a glass of wine and participated in an attempted threesome.

Her attorney, Pete Theo­docion, confirmed Tuesday that a deal had been made and that sentencing would follow at a later date.

So she takes a deal

Will she get the same deal Joe got or will she do less community service?

I only know law from

I only know law from television, but it does appear in this case that there was one call, that's all. Does anyone know how does this all stack up? And, who came out on top?

On top

I think someone was on top at some point. Not sure about the stacks because the only photos are face shots.

The events she was indicted

The events she was indicted for are probably not in her nature as is for the 30 second man. Hope she can move on and have a long and productive life.

I am certain timing in the scheduling of trials has a huge amount to do with her forth coming outcome.

The lighter he already has gotten off, the lighter she will get off. Thats just good lawyering.
