Former Ohio police officer gets 14 years for raping teen

“LIMA >> A fired police officer was sentenced to 14 years in prison Thursday for raping a 16-year-old girl while he was off duty, hours after he had taken a class that warned it was illegal to have sex with someone underage.

Prosecutors had asked for a 22-year sentence for former Lima police officer Justin Bentz.

Bentz, who was found guilty of rape, kidnapping and sexual battery, had testified the girl lured him into having sex with her. But the teen, now 17, told the judge that she repeatedly told the officer no and that she was afraid of him.”
