Putnam County man sentenced to life in prison for rape conviction

OTTAWA — A Continental man was sentenced this morning to life in prison after he was found guilty of raping a young girl.

A jury found Timothy W. Good, 53, guilty of raping a 9-year-old girl and gross sexual imposition toward a 5-year-old girl, felonies of the first and third degree. He must register as a Tier III sex offender.

The victims will continue to be traumatized by Good’s decisions, said Putnam County Assistant Prosecutor Todd Schroeder

“She will never truly recover from his acts toward her,” Schroeder said.

Good denies he committed these sexual offenses and plans to appeal, said his attorney, William Kluge. Good declined to speak in court.

Courier reporter Ryan Dunn will have more in Wednesday’s newspaper.
