MARION, Ohio (AP) — A former Ohio sheriff's deputy convicted of raping a 5-year-old girl he was baby-sitting has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says 28-year-old Randy Spencer was sentenced Friday in Marion County Common Pleas Court in central Ohio.
A jury last week found Spencer guilty of four counts of rape. A statement from DeWine says the crimes happened between June 2012 and April 2013 while Spencer was baby-sitting the child in Marion County. Spencer was employed at the time as a corrections officer in Delaware County and an auxiliary officer in Marion County. He also previously worked as a Marion County sheriff's deputy.
Defense attorney Rocky Ratliff has said Spencer will appeal his conviction. Ratliff did not immediately return a call Friday.
