Scott Kravetsky

Man charged in sexual assault of 13-year-old Middletown girl

Scott Kravetsky, 24, was charged with sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office. He was taken into custody after he allegedly met the juvenile on a social media site called Omegle. He made arrangements to pick her up in Middletown and take her to his residence, the release read.

While at his residence, Kravetsky allegedly gave the teen alcohol and engaged in sexual conduct with the girl.

David Daugherty from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office called the relationship “consensual” and the girl wasn’t forced to get in Kravetsky’s vehicle.

He said people use certain websites to “their advantage.”

When the girl had “a medical emergency,” paramedics and law enforcement were called. That’s when the girl told police about the alleged incident and Kravetsky was arrested and taken into custody.

Due to the nature of how Kravetsky met the female, investigators believe he has participated in “this type of behavior” before, according to the release.

His bond was set at $100,000 Monday morning in Hamilton County Court. Kravetsky’s next court date is set for 10:30 a.m. July 17. He remains in the county jail.

Anyone with information or knowledge of Kravetsky’s activities is asked to call the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Section at 513-825-1500 or Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
