WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Niles man was sentenced Wednesday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court on sex charges involving a young victim.

Neil Rossi, 67, was sentenced to eight years in prison and must register as a tier 2 sex offender.

He pleaded guilty to charges of attempted importuning, two counts of gross sexual imposition and attempted illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance, according to court records.

On Sept. 29, 2021, an 11-year-old boy’s mother reported the crime, saying it happened in July in the 1900 block of Cardigan Street.
