Ohio woman gets 5 years in prison for child rape



Published: Fri, November 2, 2012 @ 9:20 a.m.

LIMA, Ohio (AP) — A judge has sentenced a northwest Ohio woman to five years in prison for raping a 6-year-old girl in 2005.

Trisha Steele had pleaded guilty to one count of rape in a deal with prosecutors that included her testifying against her former boyfriend and co-defendant. She was sentenced Thursday in Lima.

Her co-defendant, 38-year-old William Purdy, was convicted last month of six child rape charges and will be sentenced later. He could face up to life in prison.

The Lima News reports that Steele apologized in court. The victim’s mother was in court but did not speak.

And people wonder why the crime rate keeps climbing. Maybe because of such light sentences being handed down to these slugs!
