WARREN -- A 51-year-old Bristol man, whose 14-year-old son was convicted of rape, has pleaded guilty to a count of child endangering.

Roy E. McDaniel entered the plea Tuesday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.

McDaniel, who could face up to five years in prison, will be sentenced after a background check.

McDaniel had faced four child endangering charges, but prosecutors agreed to dismiss three counts in exchange for McDaniel's guilty plea.

McDaniel's girlfriend, Angelique Bailey, 35, faces four charges of child endangering. She is to appear for a pretrial hearing Feb. 7 in Judge John Stuard's courtroom.

Son: Thomas J. McDaniel, 14, pleaded guilty in juvenile court in October to one delinquency charge of rape. He was sentenced to one to seven years in an Ohio Department of Youth Services facility.

In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dismissed one delinquency charge of rape and one delinquency charge of felonious assault.

Deputy sheriffs said Thomas raped a 5-year-old girl in their state Route 88 home in July while he was baby-sitting the girl and two other children.

The girl spent several weeks in a hospital.

Deputies said Thomas McDaniel was often left alone in charge of younger children. He told authorities he and the younger children, ages 8, 5 and 2, were left alone for days at a time.

Mother: Bailey is the mother of the 8-, 5-, and 2-year-olds, and a 2-month-old.

Roy McDaniel is the father of Thomas and the 8-year-old.

All the children are in the custody of Trumbull County Children Services, officials said.

The 2-month-old was with Bailey and McDaniel on the day the 5-year-old was raped, authorities said.

Detectives say the house has been condemned by the county health department.
