A 28-year-old Northfield Village man was sentenced to 15 years in prison for raping a teenage babysitter.
The Summit County Prosecutor's Office reports John M. Muzic will also be labeled as a Tier III sex offender, which requires him to register his address and employment with the Sheriff for the rest of his life.
In late January, Muzic stopped by his neighbor's house while a teenage babysitter was there and brought the girl back to his house to see his dogs. He then dragged the girl to his bedroom and threatened to kill her, and then raped her. Muzic’s DNA was found on the girl.
On August 28, a jury found Muzic guilty of rape, kidnapping, and gross sexual imposition.
