Keegan Mormino

A West Unity teen will spend 90 days behind bars after authorities said he raped a 12-year-old girl.

According to a March indictment by a Williams County grand jury, authorities alleged that Keegan R. Mormino, 18, committed the offenses on Nov. 24, and again on Dec. 1, 2020. He was initially charged with two first-degree felony counts of rape and a third-degree felony count of gross sexual imposition.

Williams County Common Pleas Court records indicate that Mormino pleaded guilty to two amended counts of gross sexual imposition, both fourth-degree felonies. According to records posted online Monday, he was then sentenced to 180 days incarceration, with 90 days suspended, for each count. The sentences will run concurrently, meaning he’ll be serving both at the same time, rather than consecutively, meaning he’d serve them back-to-back.

Mormino will be required to register as a Tier I sexual offender.

This comes after Mormino pleaded no contest and was found guilty in Bryan Municipal Court in January on a misdemeanor charge of assault. Authorities said in that case he punched a 14-year-old girl in the face.

In that case he was sentenced to 180 days incarceration with 178 days suspended. He was also ordered to pay $400 in fines and court costs.
