A Huber Heights man convicted of three counts of gross sexual imposition for sexual contact with an 8-year-old in 2018 and 2019 was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison.

Robert “Ed” Maxwell, 74, waived a grand jury’s consideration of allegations against him and pleaded guilty in Miami County Common Pleas Court in March. He was accused of the illegal conduct between Jan. 1, 2018, and Dec. 31, 2019 in a case investigated by Tipp City police.

Judge Stacy Wall said Maxwell would go to prison despite pleas for community control due to his age and growing health issues. “There is absolutely no excuse in the world” for his behavior, Wall said.

A relative of the victim called Maxwell “a monster” who “deserves to be put in a cage.”
