The Ohio Parole Board has denied parole for David Allen Bellomy, also known as the Goodyear Heights rapist.
Bellomy was convicted in 1996 for raping more than a dozen women in Akron’s Goodyear Heights neighborhood between 1985 and 1996. Bellomy was sentenced to a minimum of 20 years in prison and a maximum of 50 years in prison.
“David Bellomy is a dangerous criminal and needs to remain in prison. David Bellomy spent a decade terrorizing a neighborhood and our community,” Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh said on Monday. “We are pleased with the parole board’s ruling. David Bellomy has no business being released back into society. Thank you to everyone who wrote letters of opposition to the Parole Board, as well as those who signed the petition to keep Bellomy in prison.”
Bellomy will not be eligible for parole again until September of 2025.
