Brown charged with attempting to rape a child

GREENVILLE – A 53-year-old man is jailed in Darke County on a $100,000 bond, after he was arrested Sunday for Attempted Rape, a felony of the second degree.

According to court documents, Daniel L. Brown is accused of attempting to have sex with a 12-year-old female child. Darke County Prosecuting Attorney Kelly Ormsby said during Monday’s bond hearing, Brown was being given a place to stay with the family of the victim in the case. He was allegedly caught while trying to engage in sex acts with child while in the home, according to an affidavit.

Brown faces a mandatory indefinite sentence of five to 25 years behind bars if convicted as currently charged. Ormsby told the court that the state plans to pursue an additional charge of Importuning when the case goes before a Grand Jury later this week. Brown was convicted in 2002 of Attempted Importuning of a child under the age of 13-years-old.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in the case Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. if indicted by the Grand Jury.
