Cody Beemer pleads guilty in infant daughter's rape, gets life sentence

Cody A. Beemer, who raped his infant daughter during a visit at the Trumbull County Children Services offices last year, pleaded guilty Tuesday to 10 charges and has been sentenced to life in prison.

Beemer, 23, of Austin Avenue Southwest, whose crimes touched off criminal and administrative investigations into Children Services’ practices, will be eligible for parole after serving 25 years.

Beemer pleaded guilty to multiple counts of rape, gross sexual imposition and pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor.

The pandering charges say Beemer possessed 532 obscene photographs or depictions involving a minor between April and September 2011.

Beemer entered the plea during a pretrial hearing in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court before Judge Andrew Logan.

Atty. David Rouzzo, with the Ohio Public Defender’s Office, said Beemer didn’t have much choice but to accept the state’s offer because two evaluations determined that Beemer was sane, and the crimes were recorded on a cellphone.

“If we took it to trial, he risked life in prison without parole,” Rouzzo said. “Our thought was that he would at least have the chance of parole.”

Beemer and his wife, Felicia Banks Beemer, 21, were both charged after police secured cellphone videos showing the sex crimes being committed against the child in April 2011 when she was 9 months old.

Children Services has had custody of the girl since just after she was born.

The videos also showed Beemer committing sex crimes against an 18-month-old boy in July 2011, police said.

Neither Cody Beemer nor anyone else connected with the case spoke at the sentencing other than Diane Barber, assistant county prosecutor, who listed the offenses before sentencing.

Felicia Banks Beemer remains in the county jail and awaits a pretrial hearing of her own today before Judge W. Wyatt McKay.

She is charged with nearly the same crimes as Cody Beemer.

Save the tax payers some money and drop a bullet in his head. That would be way cheaper then keeping him alive for 25 years!

What a shame this pos is so young and chances are he's going to live for a long time come unless some lucky convict(s) get a shot at him...we can only hope !!

If a crime ever called for the death sentence child rape certainly is one of them.
It's been proven over and over again there is no hope for rehabilitation of these creatures and the only sure cure for them is death.

In general I do not favor the state putting inmates to death but exceptions should be made for anyone who harms innocent children especially babies !!

This animal is going to get his rewards in prison. His life is over now, he better hope he's not in general population. Prisoners don't take kindly to these pieces of S@#. Hopefully he suffers for a long long time.

You're right allstar - these names are getting ridiculous! Poor kids are at their mother's mercy. Whatever happened to Mary or Elizabeth??? On another note - this baby will be in foster care for a long time. Poor little thing. I can't imagine doing something so horrible to a child. Let them rot slowly and painfully in prison.

This bastard needs to be castrated, sent to prison, and made to bunk with a convicted rapist. That would be justice for having anything sexual with a 9month old child!

They better not let this creep out when his parole hearing comes up ! He doesn't deserve it ! Anyone that rapes a child/baby doesn't deserve to see the other side again !! He will face his real judge someday !!!

The good lord will bless them. At least they were joined in the "sanctity of marriage." Not like those other people.
