YOUNGSTOWN, OH (WOIO) - Accused rapist, 46-year-old Robert Seman, Jr. is now facing bribery charges.

Prosecutors in Mahoning County say Seman called his ex-wife, who was a witness in his rape case, and tried to convince her to say the alleged victim, Corinne Gump, made up her abuse allegations.

Gump was killed in a house fire in Youngstown on March 30, the day Seman's rape trial was scheduled to begin.

The judge revoked Seman's bond and delayed his trial because of these new charges.
