HUBBARD, OH The former mayor of an Ohio town faces dozens of charges for allegedly raping a 4-year-old girl, the Youngstown Vindicator reports.
Richard Keenan, former Hubbard mayor from 2010 to 2011, was indicted on eight counts of rape and 12 counts of attempted rape and gross sexual imposition.
Keenan was booked into the Trumbull County Jail and released on $75,000 bond.
According to court documents, the victim told Keenans wife about the sexual abuse that began when she was 4-years-old and lasted for three years.
When Keenans wife confronted him about the allegations, he responded, I did it.
Keenan also confessed to the allegations to his pastor, a social worker and his brother and sister-in-law, according to documents filed by the assistant prosecutor.
Keenan admitted himself into a psychiatric facility after the admissions because he said he was feeling suicidal.
Filings obtained by the Youngstown Vindicator go into extensive detail about his purported admissions during group discussions at the psychiatric ward. He allegedly said he blamed the victim for initiating the acts and said she was a willing participant.
Prosecutors are asking a judge to determine if his admissions are allowable as evidence in his trial or if they are privileged.
This guy is utterly reprobate.
Must be a democrat since the article didn’t say.
No mention of party = Rat.
Yes. Since the fifth-column media didn’t mention the word, “Republican,” in the first sentence, or anywhere else, you know what party this scum belonged to.
Absolutely no sympathy. Should get executed. I’d gladly be the one to juice him.
Go with that feeling.
That’s a Hillary Clinton move there.
Can only hope that brown mark on his face is a lethal skin cancer.
Yep, you’ve got that right.
It sure revealed the (but she wanted it) defense for what it is.
4 years old and he still thought that was going to fly.
Just goes to show that the guilty can find a way to justify just about anything to themselves.
Bill and Hillary Clinton, their backers, and the Democrats come to mind...
I would be careful to connect party affiliation to this. As a Conservative I think it is terribly wrong, but lets remember that not all Conservatives live by every Conservative principle.
People across the board can be weak, and terribly evil.

A quick google search seems to indicate that this turd is a (D).
I searched several queries and the only thing I found was a speech or letter he wrote after running as a Democrat something or other......my bet is DEMOCRAT!
Apparently not enough.
Yes, he is a Democrat.
Some assembly required.
He felt suicidal. Well, lock him in a room with a gas stove, a knife and a rope and see how serious he really is.
