Aaron Michael Fisher admitted sodomizing his 5-month-old Daughter in 2009
ELDON, MO – The Miller County man who admitted to raping his five-month-old daughter was released from jail this week after his trial was dismissed. After making a one-day stop in Eldon, he may have left the Lake of the Ozarks community.
Aaron Fisher’s case had dragged on for six years, after delays caused by both the prosecution and the defense; Cole County Judge Patricia Joyce sided with the defense on Oct. 23, 2015, saying Fisher’s constitutional right to a speedy trial had been violated.
He was freed from jail on Monday, Oct. 26 and the case was dismissed.
On Monday evening, Fisher reportedly showed up at a local church in Eldon, asking for help. A church member or clergy checked him in to a local motel, according to a motel employee. Fisher was calm, telling the receptionist he had just been released from jail, stating he was incarcerated for destruction of property, and was surprised by his release.
Miller County Prosecutor Ben Winfrey is preparing to appeal Joyce’s decision to the Western District Appellate Court-Kansas City.
