An appeal from a convicted rapist has been denied. The Courier reports 57-year-old Gary Martin of Rawson wanted to withdraw his guilty pleas. On Monday the 3rd District Court of Appeals in Lima denied that request. Martin was given a 32-year prison sentence last August for raping an 11-year-old girl in 2013.
An appeal was filed last September said that Martin was legally insane at the time of the offenses. The appeals court said the doctor that agreed that Miller was legally insane based the decision solely on statements made by Martin and no other evidence.
