Belmont County man pleaded guilty to 10 counts on Tuesday

BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio – A Belmont County man accused of 10 counts of child rape was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Tuesday.

Richard Hart entered a guilty plea in court on Tuesday as part of a negotiated plea. Hart was arrested in March 2012 following an investigation by the Belmont County Sheriff's Office. After the initial charges were filed against Hart, he posted bond and jumped off the I-70 Bridge near Lady Bend Hill. The suspect survived the fall.

Hart was also fined $50,000 and is required to register as a sex offender every 90 days for the rest of his life.
