Logan West Indicted Monday on Two Counts of Felony Rape

A grand jury indicted Logan A. West, 18, with two first-degree felony charges for allegedly raping his girlfriend's 15-month-old baby.

Logan Andrew West, 18, was indicted Monday morning in front of Portage County Common Pleas Judge John Enlow for charges of raping a child under the age of 10. 

West, of 4890 Wyoga Lake Rd., was indicted on two counts of rape — both first-degree felonies — and if convicted, faces mandatory prison time (which could include a life sentence) and he must register as a sex offender in Ohio.

West was taken into custody on Aug. 6 and is . West is  in Ravenna Township, according to the Portage County Sheriff Department.

Portage County Sheriff David W. Doak said deputies responded to the 5600 block of South Prospect Street in Ravenna Township to assist Ravenna Township emergency medical workers on Aug. 4. 

Ravenna Township EMS was responding to a call regarding an injury to a 15-month-old girl. 

Due to the severity of the child's injuries, the infant was taken first to Robinson Memorial Hospital, then transferred to Akron Children’s Hospital, officers said.

During the following investigation police learned the trauma to the infant appeared to be a result of a sexual assault, the sheriff's department said. Several people, including West, were present in the home at the time of the incident, officers said.

West is the boyfriend of the child's mother, sheriff's officials said. West, who lives on Wyoga Lake Road, cooperated in the investigation, officials said.

I would think it would be 1 count of rape and then another would be rape of a child under 10. Like age makes a new law. He should be put in front of a firing squad. Its ok though he'll get his in prison....they love pedofiles and rapeists there.

I think this is hilarious. This guy bullied my brother in middle school, even gave him a black eye. He can slowly rot away in jail.
