A 2006 rape case in Osage County, which has never been solved, continues to move forward with new leads.
A warrant has been issued for Alex Agbonze, who had a rape charge in the case dismissed just last month.
According to the News on 6, Agbonze was arrested in 2016 after DNA connected him to the 2006 rape. One such issue was that the nurse who took the DNA sample had passed away and was unable to testify about the proper handling of the evidence.
The Osage County Defense Attorney’s Office says those issues with the case forced them to offer Agbonze a plea deal.
The rape charge was dismissed in exchange for a guilty plea of stealing the victim’s car. Agbonze got a five-year suspended sentence and didn’t oppose a protective order being issued against him.
The Defense Attorney’s Office says he did oppose the protective order, so they are hoping the judge will revoke the sentence and send him to prison.
