Grand jury issues indictments

Courtney Astolfi • Feb 13, 2014 at 4:20 PM

A Florence Township man accused of ongoing sexual abuse of a young girl was slapped with 16 additional charges related to the case late last week.

An Erie County grand jury indicted William Marton, 63, 9500 block Ohio 60, on six counts of rape and 12 counts of gross sexual imposition.

In late January, Erie County deputies arrested Marton on one charge each of rape and gross sexual imposition. A now-teenaged girl told officials Marton inappropriately touched her and also made her inappropriately touch him multiple times over a four-year span, when she was between 7 and 12 years old, deputies said.

When the allegations came to light, Marton allegedly fled the state. He later turned himself in after conferring with his pastor, deputies said.

Marton’s charges include a specification for sex crimes committed against victims younger than 13. If convicted, that could add to his penalty.

Marton is in the Erie County jail on $300,000 bond.
