ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) — A doctor has been indicted by a grand jury in Ohio on a charge of felony rape involving a 12-year-old girl.
Ashland County Prosecutor Chris Tunnell announced the Ohio doctor's indictment Thursday. He said investigators found that 51-year-old Dr. Albert Aiad-Toss traveled at least once to northeastern Ohio's Ashland area to have sex with a young girl after corresponding online.
Aiad-Toss was arrested Friday in Broward County, Florida, after returning to the United States from Peru. He was being held pending extradition proceedings.
It wasn't clear whether Aiad-Toss has an attorney. There was no answer to a call to his office in the Youngstown area, where he practiced as an internist and emergency room doctor.
Tunnell says Aiad-Toss could face a potential sentence of life in prison if convicted.
