The trial of the former Stockport Mayor who is charged with rape is now underway in Morgan County Common Pleas Court.

39-year-old Michael Shane Shuster was indicted in April of 2012 with 10 counts each of rape, sexual battery and gross sexual imposition.

 Morgan County Prosecutor Mark Howdyshell says the incidents involved a victim under the age of 13 and occurred between October of 2006 and January of 2012.

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