Togba was also ordered to register as a Tier III sexual offender for life.

According to a sentencing memorandum filed by the state, Togba, “knowing his victim was under the age of 16, traveled to get her, plied her with drugs and alcohol, and engaged in sexual conduct with her.” According to Xenia police, Togba and the 14-year-old victim met through social media in December.
