Harrison County authorities say 71-year-old arrested on Wednesday

CADIZ, Ohio — Authorities in Harrison County have made an arrest following an investigation into a report of gross sexual imposition involving a three-year-old child.

The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office says it received the initial report early in November and has now arrested and charged 71-year-old Ronald E. Maxwell of Cadiz.

After conducting a lengthy interview, Maxwell on Wednesday was booked into the Harrison County Jail on a felony-three count of gross sexual imposition.

His initial arraignment will be held in Harrison County Court on Thursday. Prosecutors say they will ask for a $150,000 cash bond on Maxwell.
