The trial of an Arlington teenager charged with rape starts in Findlay today. The Courier reports 19-year-old Kyle McDowell faces three counts of rape as well as gross sexual imposition and kidnapping charges. The kidnapping charge carries a sexual motivation specification.
On October 11 of 2014, McDowell allegedly used force or the threat of force to engage in sexual conduct and contact with the girl. The indictment against McDowell says he restrained the victim.
McDowell was 18-years-old and the alleged victim was 17-years-old on the day in question. Investigators say McDowell was friends with the girl.
The Ohio Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting the case because former county Prosecutor Mark Miller had a conflict of interest.
