ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio – A judge has sentenced a 40-year-old eastern Ohio man to life in prison after he pleaded guilty to raping a child.
WTOV-TV (http://bit.ly/126Rv5o ) reports that Jared Tittle was sentenced Monday in Belmont County, ending a case that began more than 2 1/2 years ago. He pleaded guilty last month to raping a child younger than 13, which authorities said occurred in September 2010.
A prosecutor said the investigation began when the Bellaire man used a West Virginia public library computer to show pictures of himself with a child over the Internet and to discuss those acts with others.
The prosecutor said a woman still faces a charge of permitting child abuse in the case.
