CHARLESTON — The state Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously upheld the conviction and sentencing of a Clarksburg man who raped an 83-year-old woman during a home invasion in 2001, when he was 16 years old.
Adam Derek Bowers, 31, is serving 30-70 years for two first-degree sexual assault convictions and one count of burglary, as well as an extra 40 years for first-degree robbery.
Bowers’ lawyers, Chris Wilson and David DeMoss of Fairmont, had argued that Harrison County Chief Judge Thomas A. Bedell should have allowed the jury to hear evidence about a co-defendant.
But Harrison Assistant Prosecutor James Armstrong, in a presentation before the justices in January, countered that the DNA evidence against Bowers was basically unassailable.
“As the court has noted, Mr. Bowers’ DNA was found inside the vagina of this 83-year-old woman,” Armstrong had noted.
The justices pointed out that under case law, “because the DNA evidence against (Bowers) inextricably links him to the crimes charged, the (co-defendant’s) materials are not inconsistent with (Bowers’) guilt. Consequently, the circuit court did not abuse its discretion in its determination of the admissibility of the evidence at issue.”
Meanwhile, the high court’s ruling clearly saw little merit in the argument by Wilson and DeMoss that the state hadn’t presented enough evidence to support the convictions.
The justices noted the DNA evidence, what the victim had told a sexual assault nurse examiner about the crime and testimony from the victim’s son.
There was “sufficient evidence ... presented from which the jury could find that (Bowers) was guilty of the crimes charged in the indictment beyond a reasonable doubt,” the justices ruled.
Bowers will first be able to see the parole board on Aug. 16, 2053, when he will be almost 68 years old. If he never makes parole, he probably would be in his early 80s when he would have enough good behavior credit to discharge the sentence.
If he ever is released, he will have to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.
During his trial, Bowers took the stand and denied any involvement in the crimes.
He first became a suspect more than a decade after the 2001 attack.
That’s when additional DNA testing from the crime scene matched with the DNA profile taken from him following his imprisonment for breaking and entering and unlawful assault — felony crimes he’d committed in the interim that landed him in prison.
Bowers has completed that prior prison term; he is now serving his sentence for the attack on the elderly woman.
The co-defendant, meanwhile, had pleaded guilty in 2002 to raping and robbing the woman and was sentenced to a lengthy term in prison. However, he was recently allowed to withdraw those pleas. That came after a revelation that the state hadn’t provided potentially exculpatory evidence back in 2002 (Armstrong wasn’t involved in the case then).
The co-defendant then entered pleas in 2016 to burglary and robbery, but not to sexual assault. He also entered his guilty pleas the second time without admitting he committed the crimes. He was released on time already served of around 15 years.

CHILLICOTHE - A 22-year-old pleaded guilty in a child rape case this week.

Kyle S. Pariscoff pleaded guilty on Monday to two counts of rape - one each oral and digital - of a 12-year-old girl he knew as part of a plea agreement with prosecution. Pariscoff was indicted on the charges in May and served the indictment in August. His trial had been slated to start Tuesday.

In exchange for Pariscoff's guilty plea and at the encouragement of the girl's family, Ross County Assistant Prosecutor Cynthia Schumaker said she will recommend a cumulative sentence of 10 years to life to be served after his sentence in an unrelated Kentucky case. His sentencing was scheduled for March 9.

A California football player who had already been convicted of rape while he was in high school has been arrested yet again after raping a 19-year-old woman. 

Kishawn Holmes, 21, who was a standout football player and student at Cerritos College near Los Angeles, was taken into custody on suspicion of rape and sexual assault. 

The incident occurred last September at the home of his physical therapist.

Sheriff's Sgt. Marvin Jaramilla said the victim also attended the same college as Holmes and that as a physical therapist the woman has provided services to some of the football players and other athletes at the school.

Holmes has been charged with two counts of forcible rape, according to the criminal complaint.

In 2014 Holmes was convicted of rape by force or fear; two counts of lewd and lascivious acts upon a child under the age of 14; three counts of false imprisonment; and one count of dissuading a witness who was one of the alleged rape victims. 

At the time, he was sentenced to a year in jail and spent some time at a juvenile facility. 

On the most recent charges, Holmes pleaded not guilty but is being held at North County Correctional Facility in Castaic on $2 million bail based on the incident and his past history.  

When he was at school, Holmes was a star running back and his Facebook account was littered with photographs of himself playing football and status updates about games and training.

One photograph even showed him posing with Snoop Dogg at a game in February 2013.

He said the rapper and football fan nicknamed him 'Sweet Feet' and the nickname has remained with him. 

Holmes recently posted on Twitter that he was 'blessed' to received a scholarship from Akron University in November, and another from Virginia Union University earlier this month.
He also discussed recent struggles and accomplishments in his life.

'I was homeless house 2 house the last 3-games of the season & maintained over a 3.0 & produced an ALL-AMERICAN season real,' he tweeted last month along with a collage of video clips of himself.

Police believe there may be other additional victims involved in the case and have urged them to get in touch. 

Anyone who feels they have been victimized by the suspect or who has information about the investigation is urged to call the Special Victims Bureau tip line at 877-710-5273 or email detectives at

A 21-year-old Tukwila man was booked into jail Thursday morning on investigation of rape, assault and indecent liberties, accused of beating and possibly sexually assaulting a woman in White Center. The 55-year-old victim is in critical condition.

A 55-year-old woman was brutally beaten and possibly raped early Thursday in White Center, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

A witness called 911 at 2:20 a.m. Thursday and reported seeing a woman being beaten in the 9600 block of 15th Avenue Southwest, Sgt. Cindi West wrote in a news release. A man was then seen running away.

When deputies arrived, they found the woman suffering from severe injuries to her head and body and evidence at the scene indicated she may have been sexually assaulted, according to West. The woman, who may be transient or homeless, was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where she was listed in critical condition late Thursday afternoon, the news release says.

Deputies searched the area and arrested a Tukwila man, 21, four blocks away, at Southwest 102nd Street and 15th Avenue Southwest, the release says. He had blood on his shoes and the soles of his shoes matched bloody shoe prints found at the scene, according to the news release.

The man was booked into the King County Jail on investigation of rape, assault and indecent liberties, according to the release and jail records. He is expected to make his first court appearance Friday afternoon.

According to West, it is unknown whether the woman knew her assailant.

EASTHAMPTON - A man from Easthampton is facing child rape charges after allegedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, according to the Daily Hampshire Gazette
22-year-old Jonathan F. Buri faces a long list of charges stemming from an incident in February, including two counts of statutory child rape, indecent assault and battery on a child younger than 13, performing an unnatural act with a child younger than 16, and furnishing alcohol to someone younger than 21.
Buri pleaded not guilty to all of the charges in Northampton District Court on Tuesday. 
The charges stem from an incident that occurred on February 13, during which a police officer discovered Buri together with an undressed 13-year-old girl in the backseat of his car. The girl, who has not been identified due to her age, had been reported missing earlier in the evening by her mother. When asked by the officer what she and Buri had been doing together, the girl said "having sex." 
A police report alleges that Buri picked the girl up from the Maple Street School and that the two drove around town together, during which time the girl consumed both alcohol and marijuana. 
Buri later told police that he had met the girl using an online dating app and that she had misrepresented herself as being 18-years-old.
In a separate interview, the girl also told police that she had not provided Buri with her correct age.
Buri is scheduled to appear again in court on April 7.

A 23-year-old student, Muhammad Sani, was on Friday arraigned in a Kano Magistrates’ Court for raping a 9-year-old orange seller.

“The accused forcefully had unlawful sexual intercourse with her inside his room,’’ he said.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 283 of the Penal Code.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge levelled against him.

A juvenile aged 15 has been dragged to court for raping an 8 year old girl in Lusulu Binga.

The boy appeared before Hwange Regional magistrate Dambudzo Malunga.

The court heard that the boy is mother is working together with the minor's mother and they are neighbours.

It is alleged that on October 28 2016 at 3 am the girl's mother went to fetch water leaving the girl asleep in her bedroom.  The boy woke up and called the girl to his bedroom where he raped her.

This was discovered by another herd boy who went to the boy's room and discovered the girl's pants and dress and realized that the boy had raped the girl. The boy warned him not to tell anyone about the rape before giving him $3 bribe.

The herd boy in the evening informed the girl's mother about the rape and the report made to the police led to the arrest of the boy.
