Man Faces Rape Charges After 12 Years

Posted: Updated:
Frank Hertel Sr. Frank Hertel Sr.
DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio -

A man indicted 12 years ago on rape charges appeared in the Delaware County Common Pleas Court on Monday.

Frank Hertel Sr., 50, was indicted on three counts of rape and two counts of gross sexual imposition on November 17, 2000.

According to the Delaware County Prosecutor's Office, the charges stem from several incidents involving a juvenile victim who was between the ages of eight and 14 years old.

During a 2001 jury trial in Arizona, Hertel fled the country with his wife and son, the prosecutor's office said.

Hertel was extradited from Germany to Arizona in December and is currently serving a 20 year prison sentence in that state.

Hertel's trial is scheduled to begin June 4 in Delaware County.
