Between June 1, 2020, to August 31, 2021, Tyrone Hughley sexually assaulted three sisters at their residence in Cleveland. In late summer, the 10-year-old’s grandmother brought her to the doctor after she realized her stomach had been getting larger. It was determined that the 10-year-old victim was pregnant. In early fall, it was also determined that the then 13-year-old victim was pregnant. It is believed that she was 12 years old when impregnated.
An investigation conducted by the Cleveland Division of Police’s Sex Crimes Unit revealed that all three sisters had been sexually assaulted. The fetal DNA from both pregnant sisters was confirmed to be Tyrone Hughley’s as a 99.9999999% match. All other DNA tested was excluded as a match. Tyrone Hughley was arrested on November 17, 2021.
On September 6, 2022, Tyrone Hughley pleaded guilty to the following charges:
Two of the three rape charges are unclassified felonies (which carry a sentence of life in prison with the first eligibility of parole after 25 years). The third rape charge is a felony of the first degree (which carries a sentence of three to 11 years in prison).
Afterward, Hughley was sentenced to life in prison with the first eligibility of parole after 60 years. He will be listed as a Tier III Sex Offender (lifetime registration – must register every 90 days).
