A Connecticut judge ruled that a convicted rapist, who fled the country for eight years to avoid prosecution, could remain free on bond until his sentencing next month. Prosecutors had asked that Alex Kelly be jailed, citing his flight from justice that ended in 1995 with his surrender in Switzerland. In announcing his decision, Stamford Superior Court Judge Kevin Tierney said: "There is a constitutional right [in Connecticut] to bail."

A former high school athlete who fled to the ski slopes of Europe for eight years to avoid his rape trial was sentenced Thursday to 16 years in prison for a 1986 assault on a neighbor. Alex Kelly stared straight ahead and showed no emotion as the sentence was read. "Bye, I love you," Kelly mouthed to his mother, father and fiancee as he was led away from the courtroom in handcuffs. Kelly, now 30, was denied bail while he appeals his conviction and awaits a second rape trial.

A paralyzed, mute woman shed tears and then blinked several times to identify a man who she says sexually assaulted her in her hospital bed in New Britain, Conn. The woman, who can't speak and can only move her head a few inches after diagnosis of Lou Gehrig's disease six months ago, identified her attacker by blinking "yes" at a picture of the hospital worker. James Duke, 39, of East Windsor was charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault and was being held on $55,000 bail.

Alex Kelly, the former high school athlete who fled to Europe and lived as a ski bum for eight years to avoid trial, was convicted Thursday of raping a girl a decade ago. Sobbing as he was led away in handcuffs, he cried, "I'm not guilty! I'm not guilty! I'm not guilty!" Kelly then looked at the jury and pleaded: "God, I didn't do this. Why are you doing this to me? I am not guilty." It was the second time Kelly, 30, was tried for raping the 16-year-old in 1986.
