James Harris, of Belpre, has been sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to rape.

Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn told the Athens Messenger that Harris, 25, will have a lifetime sex offender registration requirement.

Blackburn said that in June of 2009 Harris had sexual contact with a juvenile under the age of 13.

Harris was initially taken into custody in Hawaii because he was serving in the Navy.
