ST. MARYS - The Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that local jurors in 2011 were correct in convicting former optometrist Douglas Wine of a lesser crime than his indictment's charge of rape.
Wine's attorney in 2012 filed the appeal after Auglaize County jurors at an October 2011 trial were instructed to consider finding the 55-year-old St. Marys man guilty on "lesser-included offenses" if evidence did not support the more serious charge of rape. [More]
