Across-the-board guilty verdicts Wednesday for a Mansfield man on trial on rape, kidnapping, and four other charges.

The five-man, seven-women jury in Richland County Common Pleas Court deliberated for six hours over two days.

Rashaune Ramsey, 34,   was convicted of six counts, including rape, kidnapping, possession of heroin and cocaine, the forfeiture of $4,550, and of failing to report a change of address as a sexually oriented offender. The charges stem from the rape of a 31-year-old woman at Ramsey's home at 201 Rowland Avenue.

Ramsey may face more indictments from the Richland County Grand Jury, and he could be charged in federal court with human sex trafficking.

Rashaune Ramsey could receive up to life in prison when he is sentenced in this case.
