LIMA — A Lima man who forced himself sexually on a 12-year-old girl earlier this year will spend at least the next 20 years in prison and could reside behind bars for the rest of his life.
Johnny Malloy, 60, was sentenced in Allen County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday to mandatory prison terms of 1o years to life after pleading guilty earlier this month to first-degree felony counts of rape. Judge Terri Kohlrieser ordered the sentences to be served consecutively.
Prosecutors maintain that Malloy digitally penetrated the young girl on one occasion and had sexual intercourse with her another time. Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Kenneth Sturgill said in court Wednesday that Malloy admitted to investigators that he had forced the girl to engage in the sexual acts and had instructed “not to tell anyone.”
