A Bowling Green man may be spending the rest of his life in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of raping a toddler in 2011.
Andrew S. Lemay, 24, was sentenced to 45 years to life in prison by Wood County Common Pleas Judge Reeve Kelsey on Monday.
Lemay reportedly raped and sexually abused a 16-month-old girl between Oct. 24 and Oct. 26, 2011, and sent text messages containing images of the acts to a 17-year-old girl living in Helena.
He had originally been charged with three counts of first-degree rape and three counts of pandering sexually-oriented material involving a minor, a second-degree felony. Through a plea agreement, the pandering charges were dropped.
Lemay had previously pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the charges, and was scheduled to stand trial beginning Tuesday. He had sought to have a confession made to Bowling Green Police officers in the matter ruled inadmissible at trial.
After his plea, Lemay was immediately sentenced to serve three consecutive 15-year to life terms, amounting to 45 years to life in prison, on the rape counts.
He was further classified as a Tier 3 Sex Offender.
His codefendant in the case, Amanda Smith, 19, Toledo, is to go on trial on complicity to rape charges beginning July 31.
