Lawrence County’s prosecutor said a white male found guilty in the rape of a child under the age of 13 has been sentenced to 100 years to life in prison.
The sentence for Keith McKinney, 27, of Ironton, Ohio, was handed down Wednesday by Judge Christen Finley, according to a news release from Lawrence County Prosecutor Brigham Anderson.
The sex terrorist also will be required to register as a sex offender for life.
On April 5, this pedophile was found guilty at the conclusion of a two-day jury trial in Lawrence County Common Pleas Court. A jury convicted the child rapist of eight counts of rape of a child under the age of 13.
“This conviction and sentence will assure that the defendant will never again hurt a child,” Anderson said. “I would like to thank retired Detective Cpt. Joe Ross and Detective Sgt. Tyler McGraw of the Ironton Police Department for their hard work in securing this conviction.”
