IRONTON, OH (WOWK) – According to an indictment filed by the Lawrence County, Ohio Grand Jury, an Ironton man is charged with the rape of a child under the age of 13.

Det. Joe Ross with the Ironton Police Department said Clarence O. Felty, Jr, 40, “engaged in sexual conduct” with a child from March 1, 2018 through July 9, 2018.

The abuse, Ross said, occurred at the home of Felty’s girlfriend, where she had been operating a licensed daycare facility.  Since Felty’s arrest, however, that facility’s license has been suspended.

Authorities said the daycare did not have a name.

Felty was arrested on December, 25, Ross said.  He has since been released on bond and is being monitored by GPS.

His pretrial hearing is scheduled for February 6.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Det. Ross at (740) 532-5606.
