DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Supreme Court of Ohio refused to hear the appeal of the Reverend Raleigh Trammell.
He was sentenced to 18 months in prison for defrauding the poor and elderly. He was also ordered to pay $38,000 restitution after his conviction on 51 felony counts.
Trammell appealed his conviction to the Second Court of Appeals in October 2013, but the court denied it. The Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal on that ruling.
He is serving his sentence at the Pickaway Correctional Institution in Orient, Ohio.
“This defendant has exhausted his appeals, and we expect he will be incarcerated for his full stated prison term. Not only did this defendant steal taxpayer money, but he denied meals as promised to elderly and frail citizens. His conduct over many years is shameful, and his sentence is well deserved,” said Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck.
He is slated for release on April 12, 2015.
