Monroe County Man Sentenced to Life Without Parole on 46 Counts of Rape
MONROE COUNTY, Ohio -
A 24-year-old Monroe County man has been sentenced on 46 counts of rape.
On Tuesday, Marcus Moats was sentenced to life without parole on the first 20 counts and 25 years to life on another 26 counts. Moats was found guilty earlier this month on 20 counts of rape in which the victim was younger than 10 years old and 26 counts of rape in which the victim was less than 13 years old. He is also automatically classified as a Tier III sex offender.
Monroe County Judge Julie Selmon said Moats showed no remorse.
Moats was initially charged in August of 2013 with 11 counts of rape, but after an investigation, the Grand Jury raised the charges to 46 counts.
