Court records indicate that the man is accused of abusing and sexually assaulting the alleged victims, while the woman is accused of knowing about the alleged incidents. Records indicate the first alleged victim and the man had sex three to four times a week starting when she was 14, and that the man allegedly had a recording device inside a bathroom used by the victims.

The man is being incarcerated on 10% of $150,000 bond, or $15,000. The woman posted 10% of a $10,000 bond, or $1,000, and is free. The man and woman’s names and where the man is incarcerated are being withheld by the Hub in an effort to protect the alleged victims.

They are both scheduled to appear in court later this month.
