Man pleads no contest to rape of 4-year-old boy

DEFIANCE A 19-year-old southern Ohio man accused of raping a 4-year-old boy in Defiance County pleaded no contest Wednesday before his trial was scheduled to start yesterday.

Troy W. Barrett of Middleport is to be sentenced Dec. 14 in Defiance County Common Pleas Court on one count of rape of a child less than 13 years old.

Barrett was indicted in June by a Defiance County grand jury for raping a boy who knew him.

Barrett was being held last night in the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, Stryker, in lieu of a $500,000 bond.
