The Logan County Grand Jury indicted 15 people earlier this week, including two county men on multiple felony sex charges.

Jonathon Kramer (pictured), 22, of 11524 Leoline Drive, Lakeview, was indicted on three counts of rape (F1) and two counts of gross sexual imposition (F3).

On April 25th, Kramer was arrested on multiple felony sex charges following a brief investigation by the Logan County Sheriff's Office.

Kramer allegedly raped a 7-year-old Indian Lake area girl in March and April.

He was charged with rape and gross sexual imposition.

One of the girl's relatives contacted deputies in April.

On March 12th, Smotherman was walking in Bellefontaine near the intersection of North Hayes Street and North Avenue around 3:40 p.m. when an off-duty deputy saw him.

The deputy knew that Smotherman was wanted on warrants.

A foot pursuit ensued. The deputy caught up with Smotherman outside 501 North Hayes Street.

Smotherman attempted to take the deputy’s weapon from his holster while the deputy was attempting to take him into custody outside the residence. He also attempted to strike the deputy with his fists.

The deputy used pepper spray and attempted to deploy his Taser on Smotherman.

The Bellefontaine Police Department responded and helped the deputy handcuff Smotherman in a rear bedroom.

An officer found drug paraphernalia on the suspect.

He suffered injuries to his lip while struggling with the deputy.
