Sentencing for Convicted Rapist Postponed to July

June 29, 2011 “Sentencing for Convicted Rapist Postponed to July” Associated Press

"Sentencing is being postponed for a man convicted of raping and impregnating his children's 15-year-old baby sitter more than a decade ago.
The case of 52-year-old Ernest Willis of Gilford drew national attention because the fundamentalist Baptist church he and the girl attended made her apologize to the congregation."
"Willis faces up to 54 years in prison when sentenced in July. No date has been set.
A jury convicted Willis on May 27 of forcible rape and statutory rape after deliberating a full day.
His sentencing had been scheduled for tomorrow, but it was postponed to give probation officers more time to prepare a presentence report."
"Anderson, now 29, was permitted to give her impact witness statement after the jury returned its verdicts so that she would not have to travel back to New Hampshire from her Arizona home. She said Willis left her feeling guilt-ridden and ashamed.
"When he decided his sexual gratification was the most important thing in his life, he shattered mine," Anderson said.
Willis's bond was automatically revoked upon his conviction."
