CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters is asking the public to join him in voicing opposition to the possible parole of Kenneth Waybright.

Waybright was convicted of the 1988 rape and kidnapping of a young woman in Hamilton County.  Waybright purposely rear-ended the victim's car and, when she pulled over, he kidnapped and raped her.  He threatened to kill her if she told anyone.

Waybright was out on parole for a Clermont County rape and murder when he committed this offense.

Prosecutor Deters urges the community to voice their opposition to Waybright's possible parole by visiting his web site at www.hcpros.org and clicking on the parole watch section.  The public may also direct correspondence to Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections, Central Office, Attention: Ohio Parole Board, 770 W. Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio 43222 or call them at 614-752-1200. 

The Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office web site is constantly updated and always features the most serious and violent offenders up for possible parole in Hamilton County.

Prosecutor Deters commented, "A repeat violent offender like Waybright deserves every day of his sentence.  Victims often feel alone during this process but when the community stands together we can support the victim and make sure that the parole board knows that the community will not tolerate the release of such a violent offender.  The Parole Board let him out once before with disastrous consequences and it must not happen again."
