A former Ohio police officer has been charged with multiple sex crimes against a minor.
Media outlets report Friday's charges of rape, unlawful
sexual conduct with a minor and eight other counts stem from his
relationship with a woman who was a minor when he allegedly began
sexually abusing her.
The reports say the 43-year-old Heath man used to be an officer in Hebron and Union Township in central Ohio.
He is accused of having a decade-long sexual relationship with a girl, now 26, when she was 8 and he was an officer.
Officials handling a child support case became suspicious when they learned the oldest of the couple's three children was 10.
The Associated Press is not naming the man to avoid identifying a suspected victim of sexual assault.
