Jury finds ‘early morning rapist’ guilty on all counts
CLEVELAND- A Cuyahoga County jury has found James W. Daniel III guilty on all counts.
Daniel, 33, was charged with rape, kidnapping and aggravated robbery.
Prosecutors said Daniel attacked a woman on Warren Road in Lakewood on Aug. 30. Days later, he sexually assaulted a woman jogging on West 104th Street near Lake Avenue. Both crimes occurred during early-morning hours.
DNA left on the victims’ clothes tied Daniel to the assaults, as well as a third case from 2000.
