Third District Court of Appeal Upholds Rape Conviction

Appeals Court rules that Ajay Dev Received a Fair Trial

After being convicted of 76 felony charges of sexually assaulting his adopted daughter, Ajay Dev was sentenced to over 378 years in state prison.  Dev immediately appealed his conviction.

On January 12, 2017, nearly three months after his October 19th Appellate Court argument, the Third District Court of Appeals issued their opinion upholding the rape conviction and affirming the judgment.  Based on their review they found that the defendant received a "fair trial" and that there was "substantial evidence" to support his conviction.
