Three girls informed police a Sandusky man propositioned them for sex in exchange for gifts last summer, and investigators now suspect he may have raped one of them, police said.

The girls, each between the ages of 13 and 16, met with social workers this week to discuss the allegations, Sandusky police Detective Ken Nixon said.

They said a 30-year-old Sandusky man, who is a friend of their families, would treat them to bowling or other activities and expect sexual favors in return, Nixon said. When the parents of the girls recently learned of the allegations, they questioned the teens and reported it to police.

Officers took note of the complaint because the same man has been previously accused of taking underage girls to hotel rooms and getting them drunk, Nixon said. The man was never charged in past cases.

Police suspect some of the victims have not come forward out of fear of retaliation. The man also tried to open a teen club in Sandusky in recent years, Nixon said.

Previously accused and nothing happens, now there's THREE MORE VICTIMS!! These agencies need to do their jobs properly, if they had to begin with there would not be three more victims. Same as the Clinton murder case, had the police and his parole officer did they job, when there was a party with under aged girls at his place, he should of been revoked and sitting in the county, instead of going out and murdering Heather and her two children. Our system is totally broke and no one is being held accountable!

"did they job"? Why was he never charged? As lugnut2511 mentioned above, women and babies have been raped and murdered by a man that should have been in prison. Now we have a man that has been taking advantage of little girls, taking them to a hotel, getting them drunk and raping them. Instead of arresting him, they do nothing. Now he has done it to 3 more children. I am dumbfounded. What more needs done before our law enforcement and prosecutors do the job that they were hired to do. Why are you putting children in danger? I am so pissed off that this happened, and it keeps happening. As soon as LE get a complaint, they should act immediately, not wait to see how many more complaints they get. Right now he is "just a child rapist", are you waiting for him to become a child murderer, before you "bother" him? What a joke our law enforcement is.

when a child is molested it usually is found out when that child turns into a molester. is an ugly circle. it is heartbreaking to find out that your child has been molested and they never told. I don't believe any adult that molests a child should ever be allowed to walk free on this earth. PARENTS, do not believe that it is a given that your child will come to you! ASK QUESTIONS!!! PAY ATTENTION TO EVERY LITTLE BEHAVIOR CHANGE !!!!JUST BECAUSE UNCLE BLANK AND AUNT BLANK DONT HAVE ANY KIDS AND WANT TO SPOIL YOURS BE CAUTIOUS!!!! THEY MIGHT BE THE MOLESTER THAT YOU TRUSTED!!!! DONT WORRY ABOUT HURTING ANYONES FEELINGS!! ITS YOUR BABY YOU HAVE TO PROTECT. FAMILY CAN STILL BE THAT MONSTER WAITING TO HURT YOUR CHILD!

First, if they didn't have the proof, how can he be charged? 2nd, why in the world would responsible parents let their children go with someone who is even suspected of crimes against children? I am not saying this man is innocent, but I just wonder what kind of parents these people are to be FRIENDS with someone who was suspected. Especially since it seems they left their children alone with him.

The parents probably didn't know, they don't make a point of running articles about people not getting charged. Except Ricky Vitte, and every Sandusky County official. Lol
