WOODSFIELD, Ohio -- A Monroe County man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole on 46 counts of the rape of a child.

Twenty-four-year-old Marcus Moats was sentenced to life without parole on the first 20 counts and 25 years-to-life on another 26 counts. Moats was found guilty earlier this month on 20 counts of rape in which the victim was younger than 10 years old and 26 counts of rape against a victim was less than 13 years old. He is also now automatically classified as a Tier III sex offender.

Monroe County Common Pleas Court Judge Julie Selmon said Moats showed no remorse for the crimes. Moats was initially charged in August 2013 with 11 counts of rape, but after an investigation, the Grand Jury raised the charges to 46 counts.
