High School Student’s Essay Sends Man to Prison

In Fremont, Ohio a high school student discussed in an assigned essay about the time she faced as a child when a man raped both her and her two sisters many years ago.  Once the essay was submitted, school officials immediately reported the essay to authorities.  An investigation soon followed, leading to the conviction of Anthony Knight, aged 43. 

Knight pled guilty to felony charges of rape and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.  Initially, the three sisters were hesitant to come forward to the authorities because they had not reported it in the past, but, they all eventually revealed being raped and the different forms of abuse they endured.  The three sisters showed a lot of bravery and courage in coming forward.
