A local man indicted in a sexual abuse case has been sentenced to prison in Defiance County Common Pleas Court.

Trey Reynolds, 26, 1777 S. Clinton St., was given a 34-month term by Judge Joseph Schmenk on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and two counts of gross sexual imposition, each a fourth-degree felony.

The first count of gross sexual imposition was amended from rape, a first-degree felony, while additional charges of sexual battery and having weapons while under disability, each a third-degree felony, were dismissed as part of the plea agreement between Defiance County Prosecutor Morris Murray’s office and Reynolds’ attorney, Stevin Groth of Toledo.

A November grand jury indictment alleged that on Oct. 9, Reynolds engaged in sexual conduct and sexual contact at his residence with a female by using force and coercion.

The indictment also alleged that in a separate incident on Nov. 1, Reynolds was found to be in possession of a knife and a handgun, having had a prior conviction for an offense of violence, thus prohibiting him from possessing a firearm.

According to Murray, Reynolds is expected to face a prison term of up to nine years in Michigan after serving his Defiance County sentence. There, he is in violation of terms of his supervision under a previous conviction for home invasion and robbery, Murray indicated.
