Akron: Foster parent guilty of rape, sexual assault

AKRON -- A jury in Akron found Roger Ball, 65, of Akron, guilty on Tuesday of rape, sexual battery and five counts of gross sexual imposition, according to Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh.

Prosecutors said that, from 2007 until 2010, Ball sexually molested five boys who were living in his home as foster children.

The boys ranged in age at the time from five to 11 years old.

Bevan-Walsh said Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Tammy O'Brien will sentence Ball on May 24.
