SIDNEY — A 36-year-old Jackson Center man has been indicted on a charge of having unlawful sexual relations with a 14-year-old girl.

Online court records note that the accused had a previous conviction on the same charge in 2004.

Michael A. Roth, 36, 15001 Wones Road, Jackson Center, was charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a second-degree felony. The indictment states multiple offenses occurred from Dec. 1, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2016.

On March 30, 2004, Roth was determined to be a sexually oriented offender by local court authorities. That April 4, he was sentenced to 30 days in the Shelby County Jail, three years of community control, ordered to complete sex offender counseling, fined $300 and assessed court costs on a charge of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

On Jan. 25, 2005, the court sentenced Roth to 180 days in jail on a probation violation regarding the case.

The case was one of 23 indictments handed down by the Shelby County grand jury, Thursday. Twenty of the cases involved drug-related charges. Those charged will be arraigned, Feb. 1, at 10 a.m. in Shelby County Common Pleas Court.

The troubles continue to mount for Marlon D. Robinson, 35, 329 Maple St., who failed to appear for his jury trial this week in facing numerous drug-related charges in two cases. The court issued a warrant for his arrest for his nonappearance. He had been released on a recognizance bond.

On Thursday, the grand jury also indicted Robinson on two counts of trafficking in drugs, fifth-degree felonies; aggravated trafficking in drugs, a fourth-degree felony; and failure to appear, a fourth-degree felony.

According to online court records, the other cases indicate Robinson was arrested by Sidney Police, March 30, as a backseat passenger in a traffic stop. Officers reportedly detected the odor of marijuana and investigated. Drugs were allegedly found in his backpack.

Robinson was charged with aggravated trafficking in drugs, a third-degree felony, trafficking in drugs, and possession of criminal tools, both fifth-degree felonies.

On Aug. 3, Robinson was indicted for aggravated trafficking in drugs, a third-degree felony, trafficking drugs, a fourth-degree felony, and three counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, all fourth-degree felonies.
