Woman comes back to Valley to face sex charges
WARREN — A former Liberty woman — who in March 2020 was indicted on sex charges involving a 3-year-old — has been brought back to Trumbull County from a federal prison in Arizona to face prosecution in the year-old case.
Candis Wynn, 34, formerly of Lucretia Drive, Liberty, was booked into the Trumbull County jail last week. She is scheduled to be in Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Ronald J. Rice’s court Thursday for a final pre-trial hearing on a host of charges, including three counts of rape that carry possible life sentences, one count of gross sexual imposition, six counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor, four counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor and four counts of illegal use of minor in nudity-oriented material or performance.
Assistant Prosecutor Gabriel Wildman said his office has been working with federal officials for months to bring Wynn back to face the local charges. Court records show she was video arraigned April 30, 2020, via hookup with Rice’s court and the federal prison. The docket, however, shows no other action has taken place since as local court officials filed document after document trying to get Wynn back to Ohio.
