Simuel Brown

The Defiance County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man Monday morning on 49 counts of gross sexual imposition and 24 counts of child endangerment.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Simuel Brown, 62, of Defiance, remained in custody at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio in Stryker.

“It was an ongoing course of conduct involving two juvenile victims over a number of years,” Defiance County Prosecutor Morris J. Murray said in a phone interview with The Bryan Times Tuesday morning. “The victims were finally able to step forward so we presented the case to grand jury last week.”
