A Lebanon man was in court Tuesday to answer four felony charges of rape after he was arrested on Monday. Police say that 35-year old Ramon Romero De Jesus was arrested around 11:30 PM on Monday on two counts of Aggravated Felonious Sexual Assault, which are both Class A Felony offenses.
He was arrested after a 40-year old female had contacted Lebanon Police saying that she had been sexually assaulted by her former boyfriend at an apartment on Hanover Street. The Lebanon Police Detective Division investigated, identified the suspect, and took Romero De Jesus into custody. He was held at the Grafton County Department of Corrections on $50,000 cash bail and was arraigned Tuesday.
An affidavit states that he did not enter pleas and the judge set his bail at $25,000 for four felonious sexual assault charges.
It was also revealed that initially, he had given false information to officers when they arrived at the Hanover Street residence.
Each of the felony charges carry a maximum of 20 years in prison and Romero De Jesus has a probable cause hearing on May 16th.
