A Franklin man indicted on several charges involving sexual crimes against juveniles has made bond and is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing next month, according to court records.
Luis R. Sosa, 39, was indicted on four counts of rape, which are first-degree felonies, and two counts of gross sexual imposition and one count of sexual battery, which are third-degree felonies.
A bondsman posted the $75,000 surety bond on Thursday and Sosa was released from the Warren Couny Jail. He also was placed on house arrest with electronic monitoring, according to court documents.
He is scheduled for a hearing on June 11 in Warren County Common Pleas Court before Judge Timothy Tepe.
Sosa was arrested April 22 by Franklin police, according to court records. He appeared in Franklin Municipal Court and the charges were sent directly to a Warren County grand jury, according to records.
Lt. Brian Pacifico said one of Sosa’s accusers and her mother came to the police station to file a report against Sosa. After that, he said, two other accusers came forward.
The alleged sexual encounters with girls younger than 13, are said to have began Jan. 13, 2013, and continued until April 15, according to court documents.
Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said Sosa knew his accusers, and Pacifico said two of the three are no longer juveniles.
Sosa is represented by Anthony Abboud, according to records.
