A Marietta man, accused of raping a local 8-year-old girl in 2011, was on his way back home from Florida Monday-accompanied by deputies from Washington County.
Wilburn E. Bever, 47, of 378 Morris Loop Road, was among 21 people indicted by a Washington County grand jury Friday.
Bever was arrested July 19 by police in Manatee County, Fla. at the request of the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
"He waived extradition and two deputies traveled to Florida this weekend to transport him back here," said Washington County Sheriff Larry Mincks.
Bever was previously arrested on June 7, accused of inappropriate sexual contact with a 6-year-old girl and with an 8-year-old girl in the summer and fall of 2011.
He was charged with gross sexual imposition, a third-degree felony.
After posting $15,000 bond, Bever was in the process of helping his sister move to Florida last week when investigators in Washington County discovered more incriminating information on a computer that had been seized from Bever's residence on June 7.
"Evidence was obtained that caused us to go back and seek the second charge of rape and that was presented to the grand jury when the indictment was returned," explained assistant county prosecutor Kevin Rings.
Rape is a first-degree felony.
Mincks said Bever was expected to arrive back in the county and be processed into the Washington County Jail late on Monday.
Other indictments included:
Robert J. Cantwell, 19, 2301 Broad St., Macksburg, was charged with three fourth-degree felony counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in February, March and April of this year.
Washington County Prosecutor Jim Schneider said Cantwell met the 15-year-old online, but had also attended school with her older brother.
Schneider said the sexual act was not forced, according to the 15-year-old.
Because there is an age difference of more than four years between Cantwell and the victim, a fourth-degree felony charge is warranted.
If Cantwell had been eight days younger, he would have faced a misdemeanor charge, Schneider noted.
Douglas Snider, Jr., 38, address listed as the Washington County Jail, was indicted on a third-degree felony charge of theft from an elderly person.
Schneider said Snider told a 92-year-old Cutler area woman in November 2010, that she needed several dead trees cut down in a wooded area of her property.
Snider allegedly promised to pay $5,000 for the trees, but then turned around and sold the job to a logging company for $25,000 and told the company to clear cut the entire wooded area.
Snider also did not pay the woman the $5,000 he promised.
Schneider said in addition the woman had a 2007 agreement with the state not to log on that portion of the property.
He said the sheriff's office only recently received the file on Snider and was able to make the arrest.
Ivan L. Patterson, Jr., 22, of 104 Riley Drive, Apt. 1, Marietta, was indicted on a third-degree felony count of failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer, and a first-degree misdemeanor count of endangering children.
Rings said the charges resulted from a July 9 incident when an Ohio State Highway Patrol officer attempted to make a traffic stop of Patterson for speeding along I-77.
Instead of stopping, Patterson fled in his vehicle, leading the officer and three other patrol units on a high speed chase that eventually ended on a cul-de-sac in Devola.
Patterson jumped out of the car and tried to run away on foot, but was apprehended after going a short distance.
There was a woman riding in the vehicle with him, but police also discovered three small children in the car, Rings said.
Justin A. Harris, 30, of 110 Dawes Circle, Marietta, was indicted on a third-degree felony count of domestic violence from an incident on June 17 of this year.
"Justin has two or more prior convictions and his significant other was pregnant at the time so that makes this a third-degree felony," Schneider said.
