Man awaiting sentencing

A Tiffin man is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to two counts of gross sexual imposition this week.

Gregory R. Simpkins, 19, who was found competent to stand trial in February, pleaded guilty to the third-degree charges Monday, according to court documents.

Three charges of rape are to be dismissed at sentencing, court documents state.

Simpkins was indicted on the five charges last year for allegedly having sexual conduct with underage students on a school bus in Seneca County.

He faces a maximum prison term of 60 months in prison. According to court documents, his sentence recommendation includes five years of community control and 455 days of jail with 235 days of jail credit.
