YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A man from Canfield will face sentencing a month from now after he was found guilty on rape charges Tuesday.

Leon Gettings went on trial this week in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

He was charged with repeatedly assaulting a girl who prosecutors say was “intellectually disabled” because of a previous health condition.

The victim was just fourteen at the time, according to officials prosecuting the case. Gettings could face more than thirty years in prison when he’s sentenced.
