ELYRIA – A 73-year-old Amherst man was sentenced to life in prison after a jury found him guilty of rape, gross sexual imposition and sexual battery.
Gary May will be eligible for parole after 15 years are served.
Prior to sentencing, May told Judge John Miraldi that the prosecution “probably got me mixed up with someone else.”
May’s attorney Stourton Smith said May plans to appeal the decision.
Smith said May is accused of rape and gross sexual imposition stemming from incidents from 2004 to 2008 involving girls who were ages 5 and 8 at the time.

79-year-old Marlow resident James Edgar Woods turned himself in to the Stephens County Sheriff’s Office after a Felony warrant was filed for his arrest for the charge of Child Sexual Abuse under 12.
Woods’ charges stem from his crimes against an eight to nine year old minor child. Those crimes include molestation and rape. The crimes were reported to have been committed over the period of a year in 2008 and 2009.
The Felony charge of Child Sexual Abuse Under 12 is punishable by no less that 25 years in prison, a fine of no more than $5000 and if convicted, Woods must serve at minimum 85% of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
Woods’ bond was set at $10,000. Woods, who turned himself in to the Sheriff’s Office Friday, was bonded out by bail bondsman Randy Cain and is represented by attorney, James L. Kee of the Hammond, Archer and Kee Law Firm in Duncan.
James Edgar Woods is scheduled to appear in District Court to answer the charge against him Nov. 15 at 9 a.m. Woods must have no contact with state witnesses, must obey all laws at all levels and must keep an attorney retained, or his bond will be revoked.
