SUMMIT COUNTY -- A judge has sentenced a man to 15 years in prison for the rape of a teenaged babysitter.
Judge Alison McCarty also deemed John M. Muzic, 28, will be labeled as a Tier III sex offender which will require him to register his address and employment with the sheriff for the rest of his life.
In January, prosecutors say Muzic stopped by a neighbor's house while a teenage babysitter was there and brought the girl back to his house after she asked to see his dogs.
Once inside the house, Muzic dragged the girl into the bedroom where he threatened to kill her and then raped her.
A jury convicted Muzic of rape and kidnapping on August 28.
