A McClure man was recently arraigned in Henry County Common Pleas Court on seven charges of gross sexual imposition.
Floyd W. Cole, 58, pleaded not guilty to the charges, six of which are third-degree felonies and one of which is a fourth-degree felony.
He was released on his own recognizance with GPS monitoring under the conditions he has no contact with the alleged victim or their family; does not enter the Village of McClure except to pass through for court hearings; and resides with a relative in Weston. A pretrial hearing is set for 10:45 a.m. Dec. 23.
Authorities allege, during different time periods ranging from June 1 through Aug. 31, Cole had sexual conduct with a male under the age of 13. Authorities further allege, from Sept. 1-30, Cole had sexual contact with another when Cole purposefully compelled them to submit by force or threat of force.
