Piqua man sent to prison for 6 years in Miami County rape case

TROY – Six years in prison was ordered Monday for a Piqua man who pleaded guilty to rape of an adult woman.

Stanley Fraley, 62, was charged last fall in a case involving the woman, who told Troy police she was raped with force.

Fraley initially pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity to the charge. He was found competent to stand trial Jan. 23 by Judge Jeannine Pratt in Miami County Common Pleas Court.

Fraley pleaded guilty in late January.

Public defender Jack Hemm said Monday he “wouldn’t attempt to justify anything that happened” in the case. Fraley declined comment.

Assistant Prosecutor Paul Watkins said there was no justification for Fraley’s “horrific” actions.

Before ordering the sentence, Pratt said Fraley showed no genuine remorse and noted the victim suffered physical and psychological harm.

“No means no,” Pratt said.

Fraley was designated a Tier III sex offender. The designation requires lifetime registration of his address every 90 days with the sheriff’s office after prison release.
