Ashtabula County woman sentenced for role in rape of children


ASHTABULA, Ohio (WJW)– An Ashtabula County woman was sentenced to life in prison for her role in the rape of multiple children, according to Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost on Friday.

Cherise Griffith, 41, pleaded guilty to four counts of child rape. The victims were all under the age of 10.

“While iron bars will restrain evil and prevent further harm, my heart breaks for the young victims who have also been imposed a lifetime of potential harms and painful memories,” Yost said, in a news release. “Child rapists rape no children in prison.”
