YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - An Austintown woman has pleaded guilty to three counts of rape and one count of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge Maureen Sweeney immediately sentenced 43-year-old Connie Ramirez to 25 years in prison.

A bill of information filed by the prosecutor's office alleged that Ramirez engaged in sexual conduct with girls under thirteen years old on three separate occasions between November 3, 2011 and July 5, 2012.

The bill of information also says Ramirez produced video or photographs of a child engaging in sexual activity or bestiality.

Ramirez had been held on $500,000 bond since her arrest last month by agents with the Ohio Attorney General's Crimes Against Children Unit.

Authorities began investigating Ramirez after searching the Niles home of William Brock Sr. in July. Agents later traced some of the evidence seized from the home to Ramirez.

According to 21 News archives, Brock introduced himself as Santa Claus to children in his neighborhood.

Brock faces charges of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

The Bureau of Criminal Investigation says Ramirez at one time worked for a local daycare. They say her alleged victim was not attending that facility.

When she completes her sentence, Ramirez will have to register as a sex offender.
