Miami County Judge Robert Lindeman on Monday followed the terms of an earlier plea agreement for the 40-year-old man. He pleaded guilty to six rape counts and agreed to cooperate with authorities.
The man declined to make a statement in court. The Associated Press isn’t naming the man to protect the identities of the children, who were ages 9-12.
His attorney Nick Gounaris (goo-NEHR’-us) says he is pleased the judge accepted the plea deal.
Prosecutor Gary Nasal (NAYZ’-ul) wouldn’t comment, citing still pending cases, including the upcoming trial of a man who allegedly raped one of the boys.
