OTTAWA — At 8:30 a.m. on July 8, Timothy Wayne Good, 53, of Continental was sentenced by Judge Randall Basinger in Putnam County Common Pleas Court to life without the possibility of parole. On June 25, a jury found him guilty of one count of rape, a felony in the first degree, with the victim being a child who was less than 10 years of age at the time of the offense.

The trial court had the option of either 15 years to life or life without the possibility of parole.

On June 25, Good was also found guilty of one count of gross sexual imposition, a felony of the third degree. For that offense, he was sentenced to 60 months.

Both sentences are maximum sentences which were ordered to be run concurrent to each other or at the same time. Good was remanded back to the Putnam County jail for execution of the sentence. Once the jail receives notice filed on Tuesday afternoon by Putnam County Assistant Prosecutor Todd Schroeder, arrangement will be made to transport Good to prison.

Good has an automatic right to appeal, as are all defendants in all cases. Schroeder said that he anticipates Good will file a notice of appeal within 30 days. William Kluge of Lima is acting as Good’s attorney.

“The judge did go through Good’s prior criminal record,” said Schroeder. “He noted that he was a multi-state felony offender and had a series of additional felonies and other crimes committed here in Putnam County in the past.”
