Prosecutors: Boyfriend had role in Ohio rape case

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — Prosecutors allege that an Ohio daycare worker accused of raping a baby was acting at her boyfriend's request.

Last week, the Lorain County Sheriff's Office in northern Ohio arrested 25-year-old Heather Koon on two charges of rape after investigators say they found a video on her laptop of her sexually abusing an infant. She denies the allegations.

The video was uncovered as authorities were checking on her boyfriend, James Osborne, a registered sex offender convicted of pandering child pornography.

Osborne's attorney has said his client denies knowing anything about the video. Osborne has been charged with two counts of complicity to rape.

The Chronicle-Telegram in Elyria reports ( ) that Assistant Lorain County Prosecutor Tony Cillo told a judge that evidence shows the contact happened at Osborne's request by phone.
