Greensburg man faces jail in Ohio prostitution case

A Greensburg man pleaded guilty last month in an Ohio court to attempted forced prostitution and disobeying a police order after a grand jury indicted him for attempting to have sex with a minor, according to court documents.

Louis Rosensteel, 56, faces state prison as part of a plea deal with prosecutors and will have to register as a sex offender, court records show.

The indictment was filed in May in connection with a Jan. 5 incident in which Columbiana County grand jurors determined that a police officer was posing as the minor Rosensteel was trying to meet for sexual relations. The indictment does not specify how Rosensteel contacted the person he believed to be a child or the age or sex of the alleged child.

Grand jurors also determined that Rosensteel fled after police told him to stop. Three other related charges will be dismissed in a court-approved plea bargain on September 22, according to court documents.

He was released with $25,000 and could face a maximum sentence of 18 months and mandatory probation, according to court documents. He is due to be sentenced on December 5.

Neither Rosensteel nor his attorney could be reached.
