Mays Rape Conviction Upheld by 2nd Circuit

Louisiana’s Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, in Shreveport, this morning affirmed the April, 2016 conviction of Cameron Mays for the June, 2012 rape and kidnapping of a Lousiana Tech University coed.

Wrote Judge Harmon Drew:

The evidence in this horrific case is overwhelming. Each of the three convictions is amply supported by this record, including, inter alia:

–  the victim’s testimony;
– the defendant’s fingerprints found on the condom wrapper;
–  the DNA evidence;
– his admission to his cousin that he had sex with the victim;
–  and his inculpatory words overheard by Ms. Daye.

While the record indicates that a second intruder was present, S.K. testified that only one man raped her, drove with her, and twice held a gun to her head.

Mays still faces a murder charge for the killing of Susan Hashway, who was found dead in her Paynter Drive home several days after the rape and kidnapping.
