    I have a friend who was arrested and charged in Feb 2008 of Felonious Assault, Kidnapping, and Domestic Violence. He and his wife own houses in the Cleveland area and rent to graduate students on a weekly/monthly basis. A girl who needed a place to stay started renting at one of the homes last summer. My friend found her doing drugs in the home and threw her out. He found out she had a history of drug charges and was on parole at the time. He even called her Parole officer to let her know what had happened. Apparently, this "girl" had some kind of an obsession with him. She called him several times saying she needed a place to stay. He called her Parole officer again, and asked that she not bother him. She proceeded to go to a battered womens shelter, stating that he beat her up and held her in the house against her will. His wife testified that this is not true. Her PO testified that he contacted her on a couple of occasions. This "girl" testified that she had not contacted him since last summer, yet he has voice messages on his cell phone dated very recently. He had a public defender who didn't even want to listen to the voice mails, but this "girl" lied in court about several things, including attempting to contact him. He was found guilty of Felonious Assault and Abduction based on her testimony. Can he appeal and on what basis?
