ST. MARYS — Ohio's High Court has accepted the appeal of Douglas Wine.
In a ruling late Wednesday morning, the Ohio Supreme Court agreed to hold a hearing in Wine's case. In September, Wine's attorney, Lorin Zaner, filed a motion requesting justices from the Ohio Supreme Court take up his case on appeal from the Third District Court of Appeals in Lima. Early last year, appeals court judges in Lima reduced Wine's conviction of gross sexual imposition, a fourth-degree felony, to a third-degree misdemeanor of sexual imposition.
