Prentice Smith, 45, will be eligible for parole after serving 81 years of his sentence and was designated as a Tier III sex offender.
Smith was found guilty on May 14 of the following charges: five counts of rape with sexually violent predator specifications and four counts of kidnapping, according to a recent release from the Summit County Prosecutor’s Office.
DNA was collected by detectives working the cold case Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) from crime scenes dating back to January 2011, March 2015, May 2015 and December 2018 which eventually matched Smith, the release says.
Smith was arrested in June 2019.
