The Illinois man who was found with a teenage girl in the city of Rome earlier this year will spend a year in the Oneida County Jail.
In February, 28-year-old Dakota Adair of Bradley, Illinois pleaded guilty to felony third-degree rape and criminal possession of a weapon. He was sentenced Thursday to one year in the Oneida County Jail on each charge, to be served concurrently for a total of one year, according to the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office.
On Jan. 17, deputies in Illinois contacted the Rome Police Department about a 16-year-old girl who was reported missing on Jan. 14, and she was believed to be with Adair, possibly in Rome.
Rome police found Adair’s car at the Red Carpet Inn on Lawrence Street in Rome on Jan. 17, and they found the missing teen and Adair in one of the motel rooms. Police also found a gun in the glove compartment of Adair’s car, which was registered in Illinois but Adair wasn’t legally allowed to bring it across state lines.
Adair was also wanted on a charge of child abduction in Will’s County, Illinois.
