A Colerain Township man will spend 20 years in prison after being convicted of sexually abusing a minor over a four-year period.

Rodney Roark, 42, was found guilty of three counts of rape and five counts of sexual battery by a Warren County jury last month.

The abuse occurred from June 2001 through September 2005.

Roark will be eligible for parole after 15 years. He will also be designated a Tier III sex offender, and must register his address with the local Sheriff every 90 days for the rest of his life.
