A Fresno County judge is allowing a convicted rapist to switch attorneys.
Charles Magill will now represent Spencer Scarber.
Scarber was convicted of rape but was never sentenced and his new attorney is hoping a judge will grant him a new trial.
Scarber's family is accused of helping him escape to Mexico. His father, mother and sister are still facing charges for allegedly helping him flee the country.
