Man who sexually abused girlfriend's 13-year-old daughter has appeal denied

Published: 08/31/2015

The 5th District Court of Appeals recently ruled that a man’s statements to police were admissible evidence because he was not under arrest when he made them.

Shawn Malone appealed his conviction for gross sexual imposition from the Licking County Court of Common Pleas, asserting that his statements to police should have been suppressed because they were taken in violation of his Miranda rights.

Malone’s case began when his girlfriend’s 13-year-old daughter disclosed that he had been sexually abusing her for several months.

BOSTON (AP) — Like their counterparts in the pros, more college football stars are starting to snatch up trademark rights to their names, nicknames and fan slogans.
