Judge sentences Lima man to 7 years for raping child

BOWLING GREEN - A Lima, Ohio, man who raped an 18-month-old girl he was babysitting has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

Donny Wickard, 25, pleaded guilty earlier this month to rape stemming from a July 11 incident in Wood County's Grand Rapids Township.

On Wednesday Judge Reeve Kelsey of Wood County Common Pleas Court ordered that Wickard be classified a sexual predator and required him to submit to DNA and HIV testing as part of his sentence.
