UTICA, N.Y. – A Rome man has pleaded guilty to second-degree rape after he was charged with raping a girl under 15 in August.

Henry Bartle, 22,  was charged with second-degree rape, a class D felony, after he was accused of raping the child in Sylvan Beach this past June.

In 2015, Bartle served time in jail for shooting and killing his girlfriend’s 7-month-old baby while cleaning a gun. In that case, he was sentenced to one-and-a-third to four years in jail.

Bartle will be sentenced on the rape charge on Jan. 15, 2020.
