A Toledo man was sentenced to four years in prison yesterday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court for raping a 12-year-old girl in May.
Paul Speer, 30, of 1460 South Ave., who pleaded no contest and was found guilty in September of three counts of rape, was sentenced by Judge William Skow to prison time for each of the convictions. The judge ordered the sentences be served concurrently.
Speer inappropriately touched the girl, who was an acquaintance, on May 5 at her home. "I never meant to hurt anybody and I won't hurt anyone in the future," Speer told the judge.
