Ravenna Township, OH - A grand jury indicted an 18-year-old on two counts of rape yesterday after he was accused of raping his girlfriend’s 15-month-old daughter.
Earlier this month, 18-year-old Logan Andrew West was accused of raping his girlfriend’s 15-month-old baby, causing her serious internal injuries, and was charged with two felony counts of rape of a child under the age ten.
On August 4, EMS were called to a home in regards to an injured 15-month-old. Because of the severity of the injuries, the infant was transported to the hospital where it was determined the injuries were the result of a sexual assault. She was treated and released to her mother on August 6.
The following investigation revealed that West was one of several people at the home at the time of the assault. After cooperating with investigators, he was arrested and charged with raping the infant.
During his first arraignment West appeared before the judge, via video, wearing protective garb worn by inmates who are at risk of harming themselves. He was ordered held on a half a million dollars cash-only bond. The judge also ordered West to have no contact with the alleged victim or her mother “in the unlikely event he makes bond.”
If West is convicted of the charges against him, he is looking at mandatory prison time and a possible life sentence. He would also have to register as a sex offender in Ohio.Tags: Crime, Logan Andrew West, Ohio, Rape
