WILMINGTON — A 37-year-old Greene County man could face life in prison for the alleged rape of a then-10 or 11-year-old girl.

Devin Marshall, 37, of Wilberforce, was indicted recently for two counts of alleged rape against that girl and for alleged gross sexual imposition against a then-14-year-old girl, according to court documents and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

If convicted, each of the first-degree felony rape charges is punishable by a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of life in prison.

The reported rapes allegedly occurred between May 1, 2007 and Dec. 31, 2008, making the alleged victim now 18. The reported imposition allegedly occurred earlier this year.

Marshall was released from the Clinton County Jail on bond. While out on bond, court records indicate, he is not allowed to contact the alleged victims, drink alcohol or use drugs of abuse.

Marshall is represented by Jay Adams, a Xenia attorney.

Assistant Attorney General Eric Michener is prosecuting the case.

Most of the grand jury’s indictments charged people with drug-related crimes. Also included are a few theft-related charges, a charge of driving while under the influence, a charge of domestic violence and a charge of assaulting a peace officer.

Those indicted are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Charges may be dropped or amended in court.
