$100,000 bond set for Ellwood City man charged with raping 10-year-old

Posted: Updated:

NEW CASTLE, Pa. - State police say bond is set at $100,0000 for a 36-year-old Lawrence County man accused of raping a girl from the time she was ten until she turned 13-years-old.

State police have charged James Baxter Jr. of Ellwood City with 14 separate counts, including sexual assault, indecent assault and deviate sexual intercourse with a child.

The alleged assaults took place on Eastbrook Harlandsburg Road in Scott Township as well as other locations according to the police report.

State police say the four month long investigation ended with the arrest of Baxter on Monday.

State police originally said that a magistrate set bond at $10,000 bond, but later sent a updated version of the report with a corrected bond amount of $100,000.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for  October 30.
