Tiffin man gets 1 year in school bus sex case


TIFFIN — A Tiffin man was sentenced Wednesday to one year in jail for having sexual contact with two youngsters on a school bus.

Gregory R. Simpkins, 19, pleaded guilty April 16 in Seneca County Common Pleas Court to two counts of gross sexual imposition for incidents involving an 11-year-old and a 12-year-old between August, 2011, and May, 2012.

At sentencing, Judge Steve Shuff dismissed three counts of rape as part of a plea agreement. He also classified Simpkins as a sex offender who must register with the sheriff for 25 years.
