New York Rape Suspect

A Barbour County man is standing trial for sex crimes in Rochester, New York this week.

He’s accused in a series of rapes involving school girls that happened nearly a decade ago.

37-year-old Keith Lamar Laster of Eufaula is also charged with raping a Clayton woman in September of last year.

DNA evidence from that case linked him to the crimes in New York.

Prosecutors there are trying to prove that Laster raped three underaged girls waiting at school bus stops over a span of several weeks in the Fall of 1995.

Laster faces up to 25-years in prison on each count if he's convicted.
