The Mayor of Stockport has been indicted on multiple sex charges.

Morgan County Prosecutor Mark Howdyshell says 38-year-old Michael Shane Shuster was indicted on 10 counts each of rape, sexual battery and gross sexual imposition.

Howdyshell says the incidents involved a victim under the age of 13 and occurred between October of 2006 to January of  2012.

He says Shuster is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday  before Common Pleas Court Judge Dan Favreu.

Shuster was arrested in March after Morgan County Sheriff Tom Jenkins says his office received a call from Children’s Services of an alleged rape of a juvenile.

Shuster is being held in the Southeast Ohio Regional jail on a $1 million bond.
