The former mayor of Stockport has been indicted on 30 counts by a Morgan County grand jury.
Shane Shuster, 38, of 1800 South St., Stockport, was indicted on 10 counts each of rape, gross sexual imposition and sexual battery Friday. The requested information on the indictments was not made available to The Marietta Times until Tuesday.
The charges date back to Oct. 1, 2006 and last until Jan. 23, 2012. During that time frame Shuster is alleged to have raped a family member.
Charges against Shuster include 15 that allege he engaged in sexual intercourse with another person, who is not the spouse of the offender and was less than 13 years of age.
Shuster was originally charged with two felony counts of rape involving a teenage family member.
In the indictment by the Morgan County grand jury, Shuster now faces five first-degree felony counts, four second-degree felony counts, 10 third-degree felony counts and five fourth-degree felony counts. The remaining six indictments did not list the degree of felony.
Shuster was elected as mayor of the village in November 2011, but was arrested March 7 after a report of rape was received by the Morgan County Sheriff's Office.
Shuster waived his preliminary hearing on March 14 and remains in the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville on a $1 million bond.
He is no longer serving as mayor of the village of Stockport as Jan Slowter, the owner of Reflections Hair Salon, 2 S. Main St., McConnelsville, is now serving as the acting mayor.
Slowter could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
Shuster is also involved in numerous businesses in the Stockport community. His family owns rental properties as well as a car wash.
The value of Shuster's business properties were cited by Morgan County Prosecutor Mark Howdyshell when asking for the $1 million bond.
