Ex-mayor in Ohio accused of raping 4-year-old claims she was a ‘willing participant’

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 Keenan’s wife about the sexual abuse that began when she was 4-years-old and lasted for three years.

When Keenan’s 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.

Video at link. I'll bet dollars to donuts what this perv's party affiliation is. Pedophiles for Hillary? Seriously, here's hoping he's released in the prison gen pop.

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.

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.

When he was first sworn into office, the railroad inspector and former probation officer told the local paper: “I’m a Christian. Dedicating my life to Jesus has changed my life.”

Apparently not enough.

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.
