Judge Releases Man Who Confessed to Rape of 5 Month Old

562bd828c76b7.imageA man who confessed to raping his own 5-month-old daughter was released from prison and now the DA cannot re-file charges, leaving this man on the loose in the community.  Aaron Michael Fisher was arrested in October 2009 on child rape charges and filed a motion for a speedy trial in 2011.  There were delays in the jury process, several at Fisher’s own request, and in 2014, he confessed and was sentenced.  He later recanted and said he didn’t remember anything about the crime.  Usually, when you plead guilty you are forced to relate the details of your crime in open court when a plea deal is in the works.

Miller County prosecuting attorney Ben Winfrey said:

“Fisher is free. He is out in the community now, as far as I know.  It is done. I can’t re-file.”

The judge’s office did not return a call from The Blaze.
