Slagle Sentenced

Just one day after Raymond Slalge was found guilty of molesting and raping two young children jurors recommended he serve the maximum sentence on all five counts. Presiding Judge Bob Brotherton then ordered that Slagle serves counts one through four concurrently and serve count five after having completed serving his sentence for counts one through four.

Prior to his sentencing Slagles wife and members of his church were present and showed their support. Many of them said they had known Slagle to be a good man who followed the word of God. Prosecutor John Gillespie made a bible reference of his own when he quoted Matthew 7:15 saying that Slagle was nothing more than a wolf in sheep's clothing.

"The people who go to church with him don't know he flunked the polygraph test the detectives administered a polygraph to him about touching these children and he could not even pass a polygraph," said Gillespie.

Prior to the trial Gillespie said that Slagle had sought a plea deal. According to Gillespie Slagle said he would admit guilt if he was able to get probation.

"That was a nonstarter with me, I'm sorry when you do these types of things to children, then you deserve the verdict that the jury gave him," said Gillespie.

The defense attorney representing Slagle, Jeff Eaves, believed that his client was innocent.

"I respect our jury system of justice. It's the greatest in the world. I respect this jury's decision, however, I am disappointed at the outcome. I feel for the entire Slagle family.  I will discuss Mr. Slagle's right to appeal," said Eaves.

It's possible that the 66 year-old Slagle will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
