DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton man was sentenced to serve 45 years-to-life in prison for raping a child under 10 years of age.
Jarod Jones, 29 was convicted May 30 of three counts of rape and two counts of gross sexual imposition.
Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck said that in April 2013, the victim, now 11 years old, told her teacher that Jones had sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions.
“This case should serve as a reminder to all of us that we have the responsibility, and should have the courage, to report child abuse,” Heck said.
Heck said Jones was the boyfriend of one of the victim’s relatives.
