INDIANAPOLIS — A conviction has been upheld for a man who received a 12-year sentence for committing rape at age 17.

Jonah Denning was sentenced to 12 years in prison, with two years suspended, after a jury found him guilty of raping another teenager in an empty room at his church in 2019. The jury at his March 2021 trial acquitted him of a second count of rape.
