(BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio) -- Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced that a Logan County man was indicted on 17 charges alleging that he sexually assaulted two female victims.
Robert Wintersteller, 44, was arraigned in Logan County Common Pleas Court this afternoon on four felony counts of rape, four felony counts of sexual battery, six felony counts of gross sexual imposition, and one felony count of importuning. He was also indicted on one misdemeanor charge of domestic violence and one misdemeanor charge of intimidation of a crime victim.
Some of the crimes date back to the early 1990s.
"This man sexually assaulted these victims repeatedly over a period of two decades, and we fear that they are not the only ones," said Attorney General DeWine. "There could be other victims who are now adults, and we urge anyone with additional information to come forward so that we can prosecute this suspect to the fullest extent."
Wintersteller pleaded not guilty to the charges. A judge set his bond at $250,000.
Anyone with additional information regarding the suspect should contact the Logan County Sheriff's Office at 937-592-5731.
The Attorney General's Special Prosecutions Unit is prosecuting the case.
