Man Sentenced For Attacks

May 8, 2013

A 23-year-old central Ohio man has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for attacks on two females last year - including the rape of a 15-year-old.

Twenty-three-year-old Zakery Neldon got sentenced yesterday in Newark after accepting a plea agreement with Licking County prosecutors. Authorities say Neldon attacked a 44-year-old woman in July. She said she went to police after seeing Neldon's face on television following his arrest in the rape of a 15-year-old high school student in the fall. Prosecutors say the plea agreement keeps the victims from having to testify.
