A Maumee man convicted of molesting a boy over a four-year period was sentenced yesterday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court to four years in prison.
Kenneth Adkins, 46, of 4505 Thackeray Rd., was classified by Judge Charles Wittenberg as a sexually oriented offender, the least serious category for sex offenders. Adkins entered into a plea agreement Feb. 28 to three counts of gross sexual imposition. In return, two additional counts of gross sexual imposition and five counts of rape were dismissed.
Prosecutors said the victim, now 14, told investigators last year he was molested from 1997 through 2001.
