A Georges Mills man accused of sexually assaulting a 10-year old girl has been indicted by a grand jury on two felony charges. 34-year old Travis Bunnell was indicted Monday by a Sullivan County Grand Jury on two aggravated felonious sexual assault charges for raping a girl under the age of 13.
He was originally arraigned on charges of felony sexual assault and indecent exposure charges but those charges have been replaced with two Class A felonies, which each carry 10-20 years in prison.
On Friday night, Claremont police acted on a warrant and arrested 34-year old Travis Bunnell, of Georges Mills, for Aggravated Felonious Sexual Assault, Indecent Exposure, and Lewdness after an investigation into sexual contact with an underage female. During his arraignment, a high bail was set on the grounds that he had committed arson in both 1991 and 1999 and had a notable criminal history.
He’s currently being held at the Sullivan County House of Corrections on $10,000 bail. He has a probable cause hearing scheduled in the Claremont courthouse on April 28.
