Second person indicted in Youngstown child rape investigation
A woman who shares a Youngstown home with a suspected child rapist has also been charged in the case.
The Mahoning County Grand Jury on Thursday handed up an indictment charging 60-year-old Rita Crockett with one felony count of endangering children.
Crockett has the same Hilton Avenue address as 64-year-old Mark Andrews who has been indicted on two counts of rape, one count of felonious assault, and one count of child endangering.
According to the indictment, Andrews engaged in sexual conduct with a 5-year-old child in December of last year. The indictment also says the child was seriously harmed.
The indictment alleges that Crockett failed to protect the child.
Andrews, who has been in the county jail since U.S. Marshals arrested him on October 13, faces a court hearing on November 30.
A warrant has been issued for Crockett’s arrest.
