ASHLAND, OH – According to reports, 26-year-old Brock Martin has ditched his insanity plea and has pleaded guilty to snatching a 6-year-old girl from her bed and raping her in the backyard of her home.
On Aug. 18, 2015, Martin pushed a fan out of a window of a home, reached in and pulled out a six-year-old girl. He was in the middle of raping the girl in the backyard when a resident of the him came out and witnessed what he was doing.
Martin ran into nearby woods and was later captured by an Ashland Police Department K-9 unit.
During an interview with police, Martin admitted he’d been a busy boy and confessed to two unsolved crimes in the area. On August 11, 2015 he broke into a home where a woman woke up and found him standing over her bed. He fled the home when he saw the woman’s husband come home from work.
Martin also admitted that on March 17, 2013 he broke into a home around midnight and sexually assaulted two 13-year-old girls who were having a sleepover. He tried dragging one of the girls outside but fled after being caught in the act.
Faced with a slew of charges, including burglary, rape and kidnapping, Martin tried to plead innocent by reason of insanity to all counts. He changed his tune after a judge determined he was competent to stand trial.
Now he has pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping, two counts of rape, one count of aggravated burglary, attempted rape, and attempted burglary. As part of the plea deal, the prosecution will drop one count of aggravated burglary, two counts of rape, attempted kidnapping, and drug possession.
When a judge asked Martin if he understood that he was waiving his right to a trial, most of his appeal rights, and was agreeing to a sentence of life in prison without parole, Martin said that he understood.
Several victims’ family members say they have met with prosecutors about the plea deal and where happy with it. One who was there when Martin pleaded guilty called Martin “one sick fuck” as she left the courtroom.Tags: Brock Martin, Crime, Kidnapping, Ohio, Rape, sexual predator
