ELKHART — A Middlebury man whose rape conviction was upheld on appeal is claiming in new court filings that favorable evidence wasn’t disclosed soon enough.

Ryan Baxter, 24, is serving a 25-year prison sentence after a jury found him guilty of rape as a Level 1 felony at a trial in August 2018. He was also convicted of choking the victim.
