A Belle Center couple arrested in July on warrants have been charged in a case of alleged child sex abuse.
Paul A. Soma, 47, and his wife, Dana, also 47, were among 24 people named in indictments handed up this week by a Logan County grand jury.
He has been charged with two counts of rape, felonies of the first degree; seven counts of gross sexual imposition, felonies of the third degree; and two counts of gross sexual imposition, felonies of the fourth degree.
Dana A. Soma has been charged with two counts of endangering children, felonies of the third degree.
Nationwide warrants for their arrest were issued. July 20, deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office on third shift patrol observed a vehicle matching the description of the Soma’s vehicle at Super 8 Motel, 1117 N. Main St. The defendants were taken into custody at that location and were transported to the Logan County Jail to await court.
According to the Logan County Prosecutor’s Office, two children were victimized over a period of several years.
