Wyoming Man Faces Rape Charges Dating Back to 1974
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A convicted rapist from Wyoming faces trial this fall for sexual assaults reported in Jackson in 1974 and 1975.
Teton County prosecutors want the judge to allow jurors to hear that when 66-year-old Donald Kenneth Pack Jr. confessed to the Jackson rapes, he confessed to other rapes. Charges have not been filed in the other cases.
The evidence needed to tie Pack to the Jackson sexual assaults wasn't tested until 2015.
Pack faces trial in October after pleading not guilty to rape, attempted rape and two burglary counts.
County prosecutor Steve Weichman says Pack used the same method in all of his rapes, which involved sitting outside a woman's house until she went to bed, then breaking in and raping her.
Pack was convicted of rape in nearby Sublette County in 1977.
