A letter containing post-conviction accusations in the case of a Farina man who pleaded guilty to one count of predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13 are now being considered as a post-conviction motion. 53-year old Larry Sapp made an appearance in Fayette County Court on Tuesday for his first appearance with counsel Ryan Connor, who was appointed to the case following the vacating of Attorney Jeff DeLong’s appointment in the case. Fayette County Assistant States Attorney Brenda Mathis informed Judge Don Sheafor that the case had been referred to the appellate prosecutor who then referred the case on to the Attorney General’s office. Mathis stated that after that information was relayed during the last court setting, it appeared an order had not been made and the AG’s office had not been contacted and stated that she would make contact on Tuesday. Also during the hearing, Attorney Connor stated that he was unsure whether or not a letter sent from Sapp to Judge Sheafor was being considered as a post-conviction motion. Sapp pled guilty to the one count of predatory criminal sexual assault in June of 2017 and was sentenced to 11 ½ years in the Department of Corrections with credit for just over a year and three months of time served and is also required to register as a sex offender for life. Then on September 21 of this year, a letter from Sapp to Judge Don Sheafor was filed with the court which contained in it several accusations against people involved in the case. In the letter, Sapp alleges that he wanted to go to trial but that Public Defender William Starnes would not let it go to trial. Sapp also makes allegations against Fayette County States Attorney Josh Morrison and Illinois State Police Special Agent Jeff Kline. It was implied that the letter is being considered a post-conviction matter at this time and a pre-trial has been set for January 2 at 10am.
