ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio - A judge has sentenced a 40-year-old eastern Ohio man to life in prison after he pleaded guilty to raping a child.
WTOV-TV reports that Jared Tittle was sentenced Monday in Belmont County, ending a case that began more than 2 1/2 years ago. He pleaded guilty last month to raping a child younger than 13, which authorities said occurred in September 2010.
A prosecutor said the investigation began when the Bellaire man used a West Virginia public library computer to show pictures of him with a child over the Internet and to discuss those acts with others.
The prosecutor said a woman still faces a charge of permitting child abuse in the case
