DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton man was sentenced Monday to 13 years in prison for the kidnapping and rape of a 21-year-old victim.

On July 15, 2018, a 21-year-old victim went to a concert at Oddbody’s on Burkhardt Road in Dayton. Afterward, she was going to get an Uber ride home when 39-year-old Darrion Oliver offered to give her a ride.

Instead of taking her home, Oliver drove to a house on Gondert Avenue and sexually assaulted the woman. Eventually, she was able to get a ride home from someone else and called 911.

On August 2, 2018, he was indicted on two counts of rape and one count of kidnapping.

After a trial on March 22, 2019, he was found guilty on all counts by a jury.

Because Oliver was previously convicted in 2007 of involuntary manslaughter and endangering children for causing the death of his 4-month-old daughter, all three counts have repeat violent offender specifications attached. He was incarcerated from February of 2007 until August of 2015 in that case.

After his indictment in this case, two additional victims came forward and said that he had kidnapped and raped them as well.

On September 4, 2018, Oliver was indicted for eight more counts of rape, two additional counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated robbery, and two counts of having weapons while under disability.

He is scheduled to go on trial for those counts the week of August 5, 2019.

Monday, Oliver was sentenced to a total of 13 years in prison. Because of the seriousness of the offenses and due to the fact that he will be tried for victimizing two more victims, the Prosecutor’s Office is recommending that he be given a sentence of more than 20 years.
