LIMA — An appellate court upheld Monday the appeal by a convicted drug dealer who said Allen County Sheriff Sam Crish set him up to get out of paying a debt.
The 3rd District Court of Appeals upheld the conviction of Demond Liles. Liles was appealing partly on the grounds Crish set him up to get out of paying $20,000 he said he let Crish borrow.
Liles was convicted of four counts of trafficking in cocaine with a vehicle forfeiture. One of the charges had a major drug offender specification. Liles entered a plea to the charges in exchange for 11 other charges being dropped. He was sentenced in 2014 to 25 years in prison.
