An 18-year-old found guilty of rape involving a minor under the age of 12 will spend 11 years in prison.
Eleven years was the maximum sentence.
Evan Porter appeared before Belmont County Common Pleas Judge Frank Fregiato yesterday morning.
Porter was 17 at the time of the incident, but was tried as an adult.
The victim also testified saying she’s depressed, she no longer wants to go to school, and just wants to isolate herself in her room.
Porter, too emotional to read his statement, had the public defender do so.
He went on to say that he knows he caused mental scars that are traumatizing for the victim and her family.
Fregiato told the court Porter is a serial rapist after prior accusations were found on his juvenile record.
