SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The lawyer for the convicted Pentacrest rapist is no longer representing him.

Evan Pfeifer, 21, was accused of raping a woman on the Pentacrest in 2010. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being found guilty of third-degree sexual abuse in 2012.

He sued the state earlier this year, claiming his conviction violates the state and federal Constitutions, according to court documents. The state denied his claims in its answer to the lawsuit.

Leon Spies filed a motion to withdraw as Pfeifer’s counsel earlier this week. His application was approved, and Gary Dickey will replace him.

Pfeifer is seeking the overturn of his conviction, the removal from the conviction from his record, a new trial, and “any other relief as may be just and appropriate.”
