FOREST PARK, Ohio -- A 29-year-old Forest Park man is accused of engaging in illegal sexual activity with at least eight underage girls over the past several months.
A grand jury indicted Christopher Charles Tuesday with seven counts of compelling prostitution, two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and two counts of rape.
An investigation into Charles' actions first occurred after authorities received reports that he possibly sexually assaulted a female juvenile who was his acquaintance.
During the course of their investigation, detectives said they discovered at least seven other girls between the ages of 11 and 16 that may have been harmed by Charles.
Charles turned himself in to Forest Park police at 6:40 p.m. Tuesday.
He is scheduled to appear in a Hamilton County courtroom Friday at 8:30 a.m. for arraignment.
