CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Today in Charlottesville Circuit Court, Mario Jarman Hodges pleaded guilty to attempted rape, malicious wounding, and abduction. He is scheduled to be sentenced on May 25, 2021, and faces up to forty years in prison.

Charlottesville Commonwealth’s Attorney Joe Platania, who is prosecuting Mr. Hodges, stated, “The survivor in this case saved her own life.
