Rapist gets prison term


YOUNGSTOWN — A 42-year-old Weston Avenue man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping two 8-year-old girls between August 2004 and May 2005.

Raymond Hutter Jr. drew the sentence Thursday from Judge Lou A. D’Apolito of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Hutter pleaded guilty to two counts of rape after the prosecution removed life sentence specifications from them and dropped two counts each of gross sexual imposition and disseminating matter harmful to juveniles.

After he leaves prison, Hutter will have to register as a sex offender with the sheriff quarterly for life.
