Preble County Man Sentenced to Prison for Rape

(EATON, Ohio) — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost today announced that a Preble County man, Devin Michael Tutt, was sentenced Wednesday to a mandatory prison sentence of 22 years for raping two minors last year.

Tutt, 20, contacted two juvenile victims through Snapchat, lying about his name and age. In April and August 2019, he met and raped each victim.

“This case is a tragic reminder that sexual predators aren’t hiding in the bushes – they are befriending children through social media, manipulating innocent minds, and gaining access to exploit innocence,” Yost said.

Tutt was sentenced to a mandatory minimum of 22 years for two counts of rape (F1), with a maximum sentence of 27 ½ years. The sentence includes a five-year period of mandatory post-release control and a lifetime requirement to register as a Tier 3 sex offender, subject to community notification.

The case was investigated by the Preble County Sheriff’s Office and assistance was provided by the Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Crime Scene Unit.

The Special Prosecutions section of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office prosecuted the case.
