In January 70-year-old Terry McFadden pleaded guilty to two counts of rape stemming from an investigation into inappropriate sexual contact with children that were attending a daycare run by his wife out of their Grandview Heights home.


On March 3rd, Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Julie M. Lynch sentenced him to 11 years for each of the counts and established the terms will run consecutively.  Should he live to see release, he will be required to register as a sex offender and be required to check-in in person every 90 days. McFadden will not be eligible for early release.


Lynch did not hold back as she addressed McFadden in court telling him, "You can't even know what damages you've done," and saying that his actions were "mind-boggling."


The girls, sisters, were just 4 and 6 years old when they revealed the abuse to their parents in April 2019.


"We are incredibly proud of our beautiful daughters for their bravery in speaking out. May they always know that we are their biggest champions and that their voices carry action," their mother said during the sentencing hearing.


"You are not welcome back into humanity ever again, Terry McFadden," their father stated during his chance to speak.


The Grandview Heights Police Department is requesting any parents or individuals that know of children who are or were previously under the care of McFadden to contact them at 614-488-7901.
