Akron man gets life in prison for raping 6-year-old boy

AKRON, Ohio -- A 35-year-old Akron man will spend the rest of his life behind bars for raping a 6-year-old boy.

Adam Shaffer pled guilty to rape on April 19.

The incident happened in September 2016 when the child was visiting a relative at an Akron apartment.

Shaffer befriended and lured the boy outside where the sexual assault took place.

He will be eligible for parole after serving for 15 years. If he’s ever released from prison, Shaffer will have to register as a Tier III sex offender every 90 days for the rest of his life.
