The father of a 4-year-old girl walked in on 19-year-old Shawn Easton messing around with his daughter.
Easton was arrested by police at his home, and according to the report, told cops he "had done a bad thing" and touched the girl "in an inappropriate manner."
Lorain police Detective Steve Curry said police were called immediately after the father walked in on Easton. Curry could not comment as to whether this was the only time the sexual abuse had taken place.
Easton was charged with rape and taken to Lorain City Jail. He was arraigned in Lorain Municipal Court yesterday and entered an innocent plea, according to Easton’s attorney Dave Nehr.
Easton is being held in lieu of posting a $500,000 bond. Easton could face a life sentence if convicted, Nehr added. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at 1:30 p.m.
