Former Ohio Officer Charged with Sex Crimes Against Minor

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.
