CLEVELAND, Ohio – Kenneth Livingston was sentenced to 20 years to life on Thursday for the rape of a 12-year-old boy.

Livingston, 50, repeatedly raped the boy when he would visit his home. Livingston was a volunteer basketball coach at Zelma George Recreation Center where the victim played.

Livingston took pictures of the child and shared them with Christopher Wilson. The pictures were then shared with the victim’s mother via Facebook and she told police.

Livingston plead guilty in court on November 17 and when he is released, he will have to register as a tier III sex offender for the rest of his life.

“Kenneth Livingston pretended to mentor little boys only to use his position as a means to lure his victims. Thanks to the hard work of CMHA detectives, this sick individual will never hurt another child,” said Holly Welsh, Director of Prosecutions for the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Wilson, 50, was charged with illegal use of minor in nudity-oriented material or performance and will be sentenced on December 3.
