A Milan Township man was sentenced to life without parole Monday for raping two girls several times when they slept over at his Mudbrook Road home.

An Erie County jury convicted Joseph D. Wagner, 63, of 10 counts of rape for sexually assaulting two girls who were younger than 10. The Erie County Sheriff's Office investigated the incidents which happened between 2011 and 2013 when Wagner lured the victims to his bedroom.

Wagner maintained he didn't abuse anyone when he made a statement to Erie County Common Pleas Judge Roger Binette.

"I did not abuse anyone, nor have I ever considered the heinous things I've been accused of," said the defendant, who was found guilty June 11.

Binette, according to the Sandusky Register, told Wagner he groomed the victims "in your own sick ways" and made his bedroom "a torture chamber for those two children."

The judge also told the defendant the sexual abuse was similar to a life sentence for the girls. Binette said he took into that consideration plus a woman's testimony who alleged Wagner abused her decades ago -- and possibly at least five other victims -- when he decided the defendant's sentence.



too bad, so sad, bye bye.


He will get dealt with in prison.


How about life without his C** and balls.

I'm with you on this. This should be a common procedure for any convicted pedophiles.

whats up hometown

Let's hope his cell mate pays him back for the rest of his life


Maybe i missed it...but why were two little girls staying overnight? Were are the parents. What the heck is wrong with people just leaving their kids with whoever will babysit??!! Hope someone cuts his junk off in prison!


While I feel bad for the victims unfortunately he will be put with others like him and protected.


...put him in a cell with a polar bear


Linedriver that is where your wrong for some reason men in prison get real nasty about people that mess with kids, his life in prison won't be an easy one and I couldn't be any happier about that if I tried.

Seen it All

Lead between the eyes is the only way to deal with someone like this. A whole lot cheaper than feeding him, clothing him, and housing him for the rest of his life.


I have to disagree. It's totally worth the money knowing that he's gonna spend the rest of his pathetic life in a bent over position. He might as well have "open for business" tattooed on his a$$.


I agree...Just think about it. It is our TAX DOLLARS that will be paying to feed this creep.


A bullet is too humane for this guy. He needs to suffer for his actions. If putting him down is the thing to do, then at least make the method of his execution a horrible way to go.


Don't do that to an innocent polar bear. He doesn't deserve that. Cut this guys testies off.

sic-of - loudmouths

Tee866, they have a prison in southern Ohio that house's just these types of criminals. It is where they send all child molesters. Do some research on the ODRC site. I forgot the name of it.


Either way, those type of inmates still have strong sexual appetites needing fed, and his a$$ is gonna be on the menu.

It's sausage and butt crumpets party!!!!!!!! Man gravy!!!! Boy butter!!!!! As if they died and went to Hide the sausage heaven!!!!!!!!!


now that's funny!

Sitting In The ...

The late George Carlin had the right idea, fence off a state such as Utah and put all these degenerates inside and let them have at it. I'm sure taxpayers would be willing to foot the bill.


better idea, fence off a state such as Maryland and put them there,kill two birds with one stone pervert and liberals


Sad but that's why huron Co is the way it is. Listen to you retards


I think that's what Mikey really likes, his round steak..he likes it he likes it!!


it's your mother who's so fond of my round steak. fuktard.


Like I have said many, many times before....bring back public hangings and castration, etc.... I'm almost positive the violence and crime rate would dwindle off some if they publicly hung murderers and castrated rapists and petter-a$$es and it would be way cheaper than paying to feed, cloth, and house them in prison. George Carlin hit the nail right on the head though, I agree with taking a state like Utah or Idaho and fencing it off and put all the criminals in there to survive and fend for themselves. If weapons get in there, oh well, that would just be part of their "population control" in there. You put up armed guards in towers every so often around the perimeter with orders to shoot to kill if anyone even so much as touches the fence(which should be electrified with enough power to do permanent damage).I hate even looking at this guy's picture, it makes me sick, he even looks like a "petter a$$" in my book! What makes people mess with children like that???!!!! Makes me sick! An eye for an eye, just as the Bible states!


Sorry pal but mommas dead. She would never deal with a piece of $hi# like you. All you do is sit in here and bash people. Look in the mirror pal, your no better then any of those people you put are a piece of'll get yours soon enough, and we will all sit back and bash on you the same. Child molester or yourself they are both one of a kind..


aww.. poor baby. i must have hit a nerve. but trust me, it's not the one that must have got touched when you were a kid. you were butt hurt when you got here. dont take the comments section too personally..


Didn't hit nerve here. I take it as I see it. You are just dumb as they come. Like I said you bash everyone here because you yourself are a piece of $#! T... so keep up the good work to make self feel better.


if it's such good work, why are you so butt hurt? make up your mind, retard. up your mothers..
