AKRON -- A jury in Akron has found a man guilty of repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl over the course of six months in 2001 through 2002.

The jury found Brolin Demar Payne, 40, of Akron, guilty of rape and gross sexual imposition.

Visiting Judge Dick Reinbold will sentence Payne at 1 p.m. on Sept. 5. Payne faces life in prison.

Court records show that Payne, a registered sex offender, was previously convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in April 2003.

He pleaded guilty in Summit County Common Pleas Court to one count of gross sexual imposition and was sentenced to two years probation.

Court records show Judge James Murphy also ordered Payne to receive mental health treatment and register his address as a sexually oriented offender for 10 years.

According to court records, in 2009, Payne was indicted for failing to register his address with authorities, according to online court records. He was given a one-year suspended prison sentence and placed on two years of probation.
