A Barberton man will spend the next 20 years behind bars for raping and kidnapping an 86-year-old acquaintance.
Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Alison McCarty sentenced Joseph Litten, 31, to 20 years in prison on Jan. 18.
Litten was also told to register as a Tier III sex offender, which requires lifetime registration.
On July 16, Litten sexually assaulted an 86-year-old acquaintance. DNA on various items of the victim’s clothing linked Litten to the crime.
The woman was able to identify Litten as her attacker during trial.
