No decision yet on new trial for MU rape suspect

No decision was made on a new trial for Fransisco Jairo Naupa Rivera, a man facing charges for allegedly raping a Miami University student during a burglary.

Police believe Rivera is responsible for entering five houses belonging to Miami students.

Rivera was originally charged with burglary, aggravated burglary and rape after being found by police inside a residence where he allegedly raped a woman in her bedroom. Additional charges were later added of two counts of criminal trespass and one count each of burglary and attempted theft.

He previously accepted a plea deal. However, upon the hire of new representation, Rivera's new attorney filed a motion for a new trial. Rivera claimed he didn't understand his plea agreement when it was made.

His former attorney took the stand on Friday. Court will convene on Monday.
