MIAMI COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – A Troy man was sentenced to life in prison this week for the sexual assault of three minors under the age of ten.
Our partners at the Troy Daily News report that 60-year-old John Dankworth was sentenced by Miami County Common Pleas Court Judge Jeannine Pratt to serve a mandatory 30 years to life on all three counts of rape of a minor, one for each victim.
When asked by the court if he had anything to say on his behalf, he only responded with “I don’t know what to say.”
The mother of two of the three victims spoke in court, saying that she and her daughters trusted Dankworth, who would often take them to the park and get ice cream, and that his crimes were “unforgiveable.”
Dankworth was also labeled as a Tier III sex offender and was granted 125 days of jail credit.
