Man Found Naked In Woman's Bedroom Sentenced

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) - A Lorain woman who awoke in the middle of the night to find a naked man standing next to her bed said that she's satisfied with the prison sentence of seven years to life given 26-year-old Kevin Parsells.

The Sheffield Lake man also was labeled a sexual predator on Monday by Lorain County Common Pleas Court Judge Thomas Janas.

That means Parsells must register his address with the sheriff's office of the county where he lives every 90 days if he is paroled. Neighbors would be notified that he has moved into their area.

The sentencing followed Parsells' guilty plea to charges of attempted rape, felonious assault and aggravated burglary.

The woman told police she awakened August 25th to find Parsells leaning over the bed in which she and her boyfriend were sleeping. The boyfriend jumped from the bed and pinned Parsells to the floor until police arrived.
