Appeal Denied in Hamilton County Child Rape Conviction

Posted: Updated:

HAMILTON COUNTY (WRCB) -- A Soddy-Daisy man lost his bid for a mistrial on child rape charges.

In 2008, Albert Schlief was sentenced to 20 years in prison for raping two children.

He asked for an appeal on the grounds of an improper closing argument, exclusion of evidence, and other issues. But the Tennessee Court of Appeals denied the motion, saying there was no reversible error that could overturn sentencing.
