Western Ohio man pleads no contest to 1 count of raping child as trial begins

A western Ohio man has pleaded no contest to one count of child rape just before his trial was scheduled to begin.

Thirty-year-old Jason Zwick made the plea Tuesday morning in court in Miami County, north of Dayton. Judge Christopher Gee (JEE) pronounced him guilty and sentenced him to 10 years to life in prison.

Prosecutors dropped two other charges that Zwick had raped the 10-year-old adopted son of a Troy man who has pleaded guilty to raping three boys in his care. Prosecutors say Zwick raped the boy in meetings arranged through the adoptive father.

The boy's adoptive father, who will serve 60 years to life in prison as part of a plea agreement, was expected to testify against Zwick.

Zwick's attorney had unsuccessfully sought Monday to delay the trial.
