Judge Upholds Joshua Winters' Conviction

Judge Thomas Sullins disagreed with 35 year old Joshua Winters' challenge of an ineffective public defender. Prosecutors said Winters lured a five year old boy away from a bowling alley in July 2016 before molesting him. In 2017, a jury found Winters guilty of aggravated kidnapping, first degree sexual abuse of a minor, and second degree sexual abuse of a minor. Winters' was sentenced to serve 80 to 115 years in prison for the crimes.
