Phillip Gray Guilty of Rape of 7-year Old Girl
July 21, 2011

Phillip Gray, 56, was found guilty on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 of raping the 7 year old daughter of a family friend in February. Assistant Prosecutors Kelly Heile and Lance Salyers were very effective in proving that Gray molested the young girl in his Hamilton-Cleves home, even though the victim found it difficult to testify while facing her attacker.

Gray faces a 15 year to life sentence when he faces Judge Spaeth for sentencing in August. “It is absolutely incomprehensible that a 56-year old man would molest a 7-year old child. I am proud of the job by Assistants Kelly Heile and Lance Salyers in trying this difficult and emotional case”, said Prosecutor Michael T. Gmoser.
