Adam D. Shaffer, 35, of Akron, has been sentenced to life in prison for raping a 6-year-old Akron boy last September.
Back on September 3, 2016, the victim was visiting his grandmother who lives at the Saferstein Towers II apartment complex in Akron. During that visit, Shaffer befriended the boy and then took him to a park behind the apartments. That is where prosecutors say the assault happened.
In April of this year, Shaffer plead guilty to first-degree-felony rape charges. He was sentenced Wednesday by Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Alison McCarty.
Shaffer is not eligible for parole until after 15 years of his sentence. He will also have to register as a Tier 3 sex offender, and is required to re-register every 90 days with the court for the rest of his life.
