Judge denies bail for man convicted of rape


LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A convicted child rapist facing a new trial will not be free anytime soon.

A judge denied bail for Richard McDade on Monday.

In 2012, a jury found McDade guilty of raping a girl from the time she was 10, until the age of 16. That’s when she recorded McDade talking about the abuse.

Florida’s Supreme Court ordered a new trial because that recording was illegal.
