on February 12, 2017 at 2:27 PM


LORAIN, Ohio - Law enforcement officials are asking for the public's help to try and find a Lorain man who walked out of his child rape trial.

Devante Gibbs, 24, was indicted on rape, kidnapping, child endangering and felonious assault charges in Lorain County Common Pleas Court in November 2015, court records show. The charges stem from an incident involving a 2-year-old child, the U.S. Marshals said in a news release.

Gibbs was on bond through the court and was unrestrained during the trial, U.S. Marshal Anne Murphy said Sunday. He left the courthouse Friday during a break before the jury returned with their guilty verdict and did not return, Murphy said.

ELYRIA, Ohio -- A Lorain man captured after he fled his child rape trial was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole.

Devante Gibbs, 24, has indicated that he intends to appeal Lorain County Common Pleas Judge Christopher Rothgery's sentence.

Gibbs was accused of raping a 2-year-old child, and according to Chronicle Telegram reports that during Gibbs' sentencing hearing he testified that he didn't sexually assault the child while babysitting her in September 2013.
