The Nez Perce County prosecutor says an investigation will be launched into admissions of satanism and human sacrifice made by a man sentenced to life imprisonment at Lewiston last week for rape.

"The investigation is to be turned over to the appropriate jurisdictions with the request that they follow up," Steven J. Tobiason, prosecuting attorney, said Tuesday.Robert L. Brown, 24, admitted in court to raping a 23-year-old woman in a downtown Lewiston office March 21. He also pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated battery and robbery.

In a closing statement that Brown asked his lawyer to read to the court, he asked for clemency on the grounds he had lived a life of satanism and had attended sacrifices since he was age 7.
