HICKSVILLE MAN CONVICTED ON SEX CHARGES

The jury decided that 42 year old Jerry Stairhime was guilty of six counts of rape; three counts of gross sex­ual impo­si­tion; and one count of sex­ual impo­si­tion.

Sen­tenc­ing is set for 1:30 p.m. Wednes­day in com­mon pleas court. Stairhime’s $1 mil­lion bond was revoked with the guilty ver­dict. He is being held in the Cor­rec­tions Cen­ter of North­west Ohio.
