Lorain man found guilty of attempted rape of 8-year-old

Aguirre

ELYRIA — A jury on Thursday found a Lorain man guilty of attempted rape and kidnapping charges for a 2010 incident involving an 8-year-old girl.

Anthony Aguirre, 36, was staying with a woman he knew from high school who decided to go to bed after she and Aguirre watched videos on the computer. Aguirre, who had consumed about 12 beers, told her he would finish the video.

About 10 minutes later, the woman told police, she went downstairs to see where Aguirre was and found him in her daughter’s bedroom. The girl was on top of Aguirre and was wearing neither pants nor underwear.

The girl later told police that Aguirre engaged in sexual conduct with her, including sodomy.

The jury acquitted Aquirre of a rape charge in the case. He will be sentenced later this year.
