“The adult male had a definitive tattoo on the arm throughout some of the pictures,” the statement of facts said.
Using the evidence, officers were able to locate the address where the rapes allegedly occurred, the court document says, and the girl’s mother was able to identify her daughter, who uses a wheelchair.
The mother also was able to identify Luther in the video, the statement says.

“Detectives … located Michael Luther, who admitted during an interview that he has raped the juvenile six-seven times when she was under 10 years of age and took pictures as well as video of the incident,” the statement says.
And it’s these statements that Luther’s defense team hopes to suppress.
A motion filed earlier this month says Luther wasn’t informed of his Miranda rights before he spoke with authorities.
“Defendant maintains that all statements claimed to (have been) made by the defendant were not voluntarily, intelligently and knowingly made,” the motion to suppress statements says. “Any statements made by defendant in response to an interrogation must be suppressed.”
A response from the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office hasn’t been filed in the case.
