SAVANNAH, Tenn. (WATE) — Holly Bobo’s family says they finally have justice.
After reaching a plea deal with the state of Tennessee, Zach Adams received life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder, and 50-year consecutive sentence for the kidnapping and rape of Holly Bobo. Adams did not take the stand but accepted his punishment publicly in court.

Karen Bobo, Holly Bobo’s mother, took the stand to talk about her daughter’s life and address the prosecution and law enforcement for their help and support. Bobo also addressed Adams. She asked him to look at her as she told him how much her daughter loved life.
“I know that my daughter fought and fought hard for her life,” said Karen Bobo.
Judge C. Creed McGinley told the court this was the longest case and most complex case he has seen. The trial took 11 days.
