Bellevue man pleads guilty to molestation

A Bellevue man pleaded guilty to an amended charge for molesting four young girls last spring.

Lawrence Hoffman, 18, was found guilty of attempted gross sexual imposition after entering the plea in Huron County Common Pleas Court Wednesday, according to court records.

The fourth-degree felony is punishable by up to 18 months in prison.

Bellevue police arrested Hoffman in January after one girl’s mother reported the abuse.

Hoffman told the girls they were playing a game when he exposed himself to them and touched their genitals.

He is scheduled to be sentenced in August.
