Man pleads to 2 counts of rape in assault of boy

A Toledo man who sexually assaulted a 2-year-old boy entered into a plea agreement yesterday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court to lesser charges.

Donald Garabrandt, 32, of 105 17th St., pleaded no contest to two counts of rape for incidents that occurred Feb. 1, 2005, and Aug. 1, 2005, in the victim s central-city home. Judge Charles Wittenberg found him guilty and set sentencing for Sept. 5.

The investigation began after the boy made statements to his mother about inappropriate conduct involving the defendant, who later admitted he committed the sex acts, authorities said.
