JOHNSON CITY — A man convicted of kidnapping and raping an acquaintance in August 2016 will spend the rest of his life in prison after a Blanco County jury found him guilty on five out of six charges connected with the violent incident.
On Jan. 24, the 33rd/424th Judicial District Court jury recommended Timothy Wade “Chili Dog” Foth, 37, serve three life sentences on aggravated sexual assault charges, 99 years for aggravated kidnapping, and another 50 years for aggravated robbery.
The trial lasted fewer than three days in a Blanco County courtroom in Johnson City.
The jury also recommended a fine of $10,000 on the robbery charge.
In August 2016, Foth “restrained and attacked” a woman in her 30s at a residence in the 600 block of Forest View Drive, according to a Blanco County Sheriff’s Office report.
The woman told investigators Foth drove her to the residence, threatened her with a weapon, sexually assaulted her, stole items from her, and fled the scene.
She was treated for her injuries and released from a hospital.
A few days after the incident, Blanco County authorities coaxed Foth using social media to surrender in Bexar County.
To track down the suspect, Blanco County authorities were assisted by the Blanco Police Department, the Hays County Sheriff’s Office, and the U.S. Marshals Service’s Fugitive Task Force.
