ERIE COUNTY, OH (WTOL) - A Sandusky pastor who has spent the past two years in prison after being found guilty of Gross Sexual Imposition will get a new trial.
The Sixth District Court of Appeals ruled Friday that there were enough questions in Richard Mick's original trial in Erie County to warrant a re-trial.
He was found guilty in 2016 of child rape, earning a life sentence.
The appeals court says Mick was denied effective assistance of trial counsel.
No dates on this new trial have yet been set.
