Man sentenced in 2006 Miami University rape case
BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - The man who pleaded guilty in the 2006 rape investigation of a Miami University student was sentenced on Thursday.
Lloyd Wendell Ailes, 59, pleaded guilty on May 3, 2022, to charges of rape, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and gun specifications, the prosecutor’s office said.
In court, Ailes was sentenced to 17 years. The judge said he has time served of more than 200 days.
Ailes did have a message for the victim on Thursday: “I’m sorry. If I could take it back, I would. I can even tell the court. I mean, if there’s anything I could do to change it, I would.”
Ailes must also register as a sex offender five days after his release from prison and serve a mandatory five years of probation.
He was arrested in Connersville, Ind., in December of 2021.
DNA and forensic genealogy connected Ailes with the rape investigation of a Miami University student that had gone unsolved for 16 years.
