LIMA — A 22-year-old Lima man faces up four decades behind bars when he is sentenced in March for having sexual contact with children as young as 9.
Perry Jones appeared Thursday in Allen County Common Pleas Court and accepted an offer from prosecutors that called for him to plead guilty to six of 19 sex-related charges leveled against him.
Jones was indicted in May by an Allen County grand jury on crimes ranging from rape to the use of a minor in nudity-oriented material. The rape charge, a first-degree felony, alleges Jones engaged in sexual conduct with a 9-year-old in August through November 2015. That charge was amended by prosecutors to attempted rape as part of the plea deal.
