Aaron von Ehlinger files motion for acquittal or new trial
The sentencing for his rape conviction is currently scheduled for July 28
ADA COUNTY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Court documents show a motion was filed on behalf of former State Representative Aaron von Ehlinger asking for an acquittal or a motion for a new trial.
According to court documents, von Ehlinger’s attorney John Cox cited both a lack of sufficient evidence and an error with respect to Statutory and Constitutional grounds during the trial in his reasoning for the motion.
Von Ehlinger was found guilty of raping a statehouse intern. An additional motion was also filed for him to be released on bond pending further proceedings. Those motions are scheduled to be considered in a hearing on June 13.
The sentencing for his rape conviction is currently scheduled for July 28.
Von Ehlinger resigned from the House of Representatives last year following a House Ethics Committee hearing.
