Jury Deadlocks on Rape Charge
HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) -- A Hamilton County jury returns a split verdict for a man accused of raping a woman and impersonating a police officer.
The jury deadlocked on a rape charge, but found Ray Cobia guilty of impersonating an officer and one count of sexual battery.
The prosecutor says Cobia arranged to pay a victim for sex then showed her a badge and claimed to be a police officer when she tried to leave. Cobia could face up to seven and a half years in prison.
He pleaded guilty in a similar case in 2008 and spent four years behind bars.
