Brunswick Man Pleads Guilty to 2022 Rape
State v. Larry Price

October 30, 2023

District Attorney Keith Higgins announces that Larry Price, 33, from Brunswick, pled guilty to Rape in lieu of a criminal jury trial, pursuant to a negotiated guilty plea in Glynn County Superior Court on October 30, 2023.

The Glynn County Police Department investigated the incident, which occurred in August of 2022. The victim and the defendant, Larry Price, had been friends for several years, and had on occasion used drugs together, but had never been sexually involved with each other. On the date of the rape, the victim was over at her nephew’s residence, when Price texted her about meeting up to smoke marijuana and use methamphetamine. When Price got to the house, he and the victim smoked “meth joints.” After using the drugs, the victim went to her nephew’s room to sleep. Shortly thereafter, Price enters the bedroom, sees the victim sleeping, removes her pants and undergarments, performs oral sodomy on the victim and has sexual intercourse on her. The victim awakens, says she must use the bathroom, leaves the house, and walks to a nearby residence. The victim never consented to the sexual acts. The victim did not report the rape on that date because she was not sure what had happened.

A few days later, the victim’s nephew reviewed the video camera from the computer that was in his bedroom. The video shows the victim in a deep sleep or state of unconsciousness. The video also shows Price performing oral sodomy on the victim and having sexual intercourse with her. Price gave a statement to the police admitting to sexual intercourse and oral sodomy, but claimed the victim was acting like she was asleep.

Following acceptance of the guilty plea to rape, Superior Court Judge Stephen G. Scarlett, Sr., sentenced Price to 25 years to serve in the Department of Corrections without the possibility of parole followed by life on probation.
