YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A jury in Mahoning County has found a man guilty of 19 counts of rape.
Prosecutors say Kenneth Thomas repeatedly raped a young boy over the course of five years.
A jury began deliberations at 11 a.m. Thursday and returned with a verdict in the afternoon.
Thomas’ attorney said previously that the victim’s mother just has an agenda against Thomas.
He will be sentenced at a later date.
Sixteen of the charges involve automatic life in prison sentences.
