Man convicted, sentenced to life in prison for rape of 7-year-old: Prosecutor
WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - A Warren County judge sentenced a man to life in prison Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a 7-year-old girl, according to a news release from the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.
Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell says Tyler James Hagens, 27, pleaded guilty to one count of rape and eight counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor.
According to a news release from the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office, Hagens sexually assaulted the victim at a Deerfield Township hotel in April and created at least four videos of the assault.
The release says, the morning after the assault, the victim told her mother about the abuse and showed her the videos Hagens sent to her.
The mother then reported the assault to the Warren County Sheriff’s Office and deputies began investigating immediately.
Hagens surrendered to investigators on April 15, police said.
He has to serve at least 25 years before he is eligible for parole, court documents read.
Hagens has been designated a Tier III Sexual Offender and is required to register with the sheriff’s Office every three months for the rest of his life.
