Ohio man gets 25 years in prison for raping infant

Published:

WARREN, Ohio (AP) -- A northeast Ohio man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for raping a 9-month-old relative during an intermittently supervised visit at a county social-services building.

A judge sentenced 23-year-old Cody Beemer of Warren on Tuesday. He pleaded guilty to rape, gross sexual imposition and four counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

Beemer's wife is facing similar charges.

Beemer also pleaded guilty to molesting an 18-month-old relative while he and his wife were babysitting at their home.

The Warren Tribune Chronicle (http://bit.ly/Lr7sJz ) reports an older relative found cellphone recordings of the incidents and contacted police.

Beemer didn't speak in court. His attorney says Beemer is remorseful.

The case has led to investigations of the children's services agency.
