A West Farmington man has pleaded guilty and been sentenced for raping a child.

John Hostetler, 63, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to three counts of rape and one count of gross sexual imposition.

He was immediately sentenced to ten years in prison and ordered to register as a sex offender.

The Trumbull County Sheriff's deputies arrested Hostetler in April after allegations were made that seven or eight years before, he had assaulted a child less than 13 years old.
