BROWN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A jury in Brown County has found a man guilty of four counts of child rape.
Patrick Boles, 61, was found guilty of four counts of Rape of a Child Under 13 on Friday. According to prosecutors, the offenses occurred in the early 1990s in Higginsport.
Boles was found not guilty of four additional counts of Rape of a Child Under 13.
"Through no fault of the victim, these offenses were not reported to authorities until many years after they occurred," said Brown County Prosecuting Attorney Jessica Little in a statement. "The victim is now a grown woman, and has suffered severe emotional and mental trauma from adolescence through [her] entire adult life. Although the evil that has been done to her can't be undone, she has at last received justice."
Boles will be sentenced June 19.
