Louie Delgado, 47, rural Archbold, was sentenced to 15 years in prison on charges of rape and gross sexual imposition in Henry County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday, March 23.

A spokesman for Gwen Howe-Gebers, Henry County prosecuting attorney, said the rape charge stems from an incident involving a 19-year-old woman.

The gross sexual imposition charge resulted from an incident involving a 13-yearold girl.

A Henry County Grand Jury handed down a sixcount indictment against Delgado, which was filed with the Clerk of Courts office on Sept. 23, 2020.

The indictment charged him with two counts of rape, a first-degree felony; two counts of sexual battery, a third-degree felony; and two counts of gross sexual imposition, a third-degree felony.

As part of a negotiated plea, Delgado entered guilty pleas to one count of rape and the gross sexual imposition charge. The other charges were dismissed.

Sentence

Delgado was sentenced to 10 years in prison on the rape charge and five years on the gross sexual imposition charge.

The two prison terms were ordered to be served consecutively, for a total prison term of 15 years.

The court also classified Delgado as a Tier III sex offender.

Tier III offenders are required to register their addresses with their local sheriff every 90 days for the rest of their lives.

Location

As of Tuesday morning, Delgado was being held at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, awaiting transport to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections Correctional Reception Center at Orient.

Once at Orient, ODRC officials determine at which institution the offender will serve their sentence.
