Man pleads in sexual battery of teen

Bryan Paugh

LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) — A Beloit man pleaded guilty on Wednesday to sexual battery charges surrounding a 14-year-old girl.

Bryan C. Paugh, 35, was charged with having sexual relations with the teen girl in the basement of his Heritage Drive home.

Paugh’s guilty plea will prevent a grand jury indictment and the teen girl will not have to testify.

Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 8. Prosecutors said they will ask for five years in prison, which is the maximum sentence for the charge.
