Local Man Sentenced For Kidnapping Children

(ONN) -- A Pickaway County man charged with kidnapping and assaulting two girls has been sentenced to 15 years behind bars.


William Weaver also has to register as a tier-3 sex offender for the rest of his life. Weaver entered an Alford Plea to the charges of gross sexual imposition and kidnapping after the charges were filed for grabbing and assaulting a 10-year-old girl.


Under an Alford Plea, defendants claim they are innocent of a crime but acknowledge that they would be found guilty, if the case went to trial.


Once he is released, Weaver will not be able to live within 1,000 feet of a school.
