LIMA — A Sidney man facing two counts of rape on Monday pleaded guilty to reduced charges and limited his maximum possible time behind bars to 10 years.

Brandon Smith, 36, was indicted by an Allen County grand jury in June on two counts of first-degree felony rape for allegedly engaging “in sexual conduct with Jane Doe … by force or threat of force” on or about April 21 of this year. He has been held on $500,000 bond since that time and last month had waived his constitutional right to a speedy trial.

During a hearing Monday in Allen County Common Pleas Court, Smith accepted a deal from prosecutors that called for him to plead guilty to a Bill of Information charging him with two counts of sexual battery, third-degree felony charges, in exchange for the dismissal of the rape charges.
