Rapist appeals stalking conviction
Jeffrey Kitze, who spent 20 years in prison for the 1989 rape of his sister's roommate the day after both young women graduated from UVA Law School, is appealing his January 10 misdemeanor conviction for stalking a local activist. Kitze, 49, was sentenced to two months in jail. This isn't the first time he's appealed a conviction. His 1990 conviction for rape was retried in 1994, and he was found guilty again.
Kitze has been incarcerated since last year, when he was found guilty of probation violation October 5, and he has a parole violation hearing coming up in March. No date has been set for the stalking appeal to be heard in Charlottesville Circuit Court.
