A federal appeals court has apparently ended the appeals of Dennis Deschaine, convicted of the 1988 murder and sexual assault of Sarah Cherry, then a 12-year-old from Bowdoin.

Since his first trail and through appeal after appeal, Dennis Deschaine has maintained his innocence. But a jury convicted him of sexually assaulting Sarah Cherry, stabbing her, and dumping her body in the woods near the Bowdoin home where she was babysitting. The State Supreme Court upheld his conviction. Motions for a new trial were denied.
