Man gets 4 life terms in child rape cases


A man was sentenced in Lucas County Common Pleas Court Thursday to life in prison after previously being found guilty of multiple counts of rape involving a young girl.

Billie Noles, 38, of 1120 Buck Rd. was sentenced to four consecutive life terms in prison. A jury found him guilty Sept. 26 of four counts of rape involving a victim under age 10.

Noles was found guilty of sexually assaulting the child, who was 4 years old at the time, several times from February, 2006, through April, 2006.

Judge Gary Cook also ordered the maximum monetary fine of $20,000 for each count, for a total of $80,000. The judge furtherdeclared Noles a child sex offender and consequently responsible for registering his address for the rest of his life if he were released from prison.
