Ohio adoptive father sentenced in child rape case

By By DAN SEWELL

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An adoptive father has been sentenced to 50 years to life in prison, the second lengthy sentence for the 40-year-old Ohio man who admitted raping three boys in his care.

The sentence will run at the same time with one of 60 years to life in another case, virtually ensuring that he will spend the rest of his life in prison. In both cases, he pleaded guilty in plea agreements with prosecutors.

The Montgomery County sentencing Tuesday wraps up child rape cases against the man and two other men he allegedly arranged to let rape one adopted son.

The Associated Press isn't naming the adoptive father to protect the identities of three boys and one girl in his care, ages ranging 9-12 when he was arrested one year ago.
