Appeals court: No jail credit for convicted rapist, murderer

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – A court has rejected the appeal of a man convicted of murder and child rape in Ohio who sought credit for nearly 16 years of jail time served in Kentucky.

The Ohio 2nd District Court of Appeals recently upheld a ruling that Eugene Gall shouldn’t receive the credit.

Gall was convicted of raping and kidnapping in Warren and Butler counties in the 1970s and later of kidnapping, rape and murder in Montgomery and Greene counties.

He was sentenced to 47 to 165 years to life in prison in the Montgomery and Greene County cases.

The Ohio Parole Board had been considering parole, with credit for time Gall served in Kentucky before a conviction and death sentence there were reversed.

Gall’s attorney says they will appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court.
