An East Fultonham man was arraigned in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court on multiple sex charges.

57-year-old Bruce Stapleton Senior entered a not guilty plea in front of Judge Mark Fleegle Wednesday.

Prosecutor Michael  Haddox says Stapleton has been charged with 10 counts of gross sexual imposition, 15 counts of rape and 11 counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Haddox says  the charges stem from incidents between June of 2006 and August of 2009 involving three juveniles.

Stapleton is being held in the Muskingum County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond.
