A Zanesville man has pled not-guilty to multiple sex charges.

43-year-old Robert Davis Jr. made the plea Wednesday in Muskingum County Common Pleas to two counts of first-degree-felony rape, one of which carries a possible life sentence, and one third-degree-felony charge of gross sexual imposition.

According to Assistant Prosecutor Bob Smith, the charges stem from multiple incidents involving children from 1997 to March of this year.

Judge Mark Fleegle continued Davis’ bond at $1 million. He remains held in the Muskingum County Jail.
