A 77-year-old man was convicted yesterday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court of sexually abusing two boys in his South Toledo home.
Karl Lang, of 45 Eastern Ave., pleaded no contest to one count each of rape and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, avoiding a trial that was scheduled to begin today. Judge Frederick McDonald found him guilty and scheduled sentencing for Aug. 1. Lang is being held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $125,000 bond.
Lang admitted to police that he had sexual contact with the boys, who were then 12 years old, while they were in his home. One of the victims was abused from September, 2005, to January, 2006, and the other boy was molested from April, 2005, to September, 2005, prosecutors said.
