A Bryan man was indicted Tuesday on charges that could result in a mandatory term of life in prison without parole if he is eventually found guilty.
Richard A. Mojica Jr., is already serving time at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio. He is facing two charges of first degree felony rape.
Mojica was originally indicted back in August. The most recent charges however, now carry much more severe penalties.
According to the grand jury indictment, Mojica, back in May, sexually assaulted a woman who suffered a mental or physical condition without the ability to resist or consent to the activity. Authorities say Mojica forced the woman to comply through threats. He is now accused of being a sexually violent predator and a repeat violent offender, meaning he could face a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.
Mojica was arrested before, back in 2004, on a rape charge out of Henry County. At that time, he pleaded no contest. He was arrested again in 2011 in Williams County for failure to notify authorities of a change in address, which he was required to do because of his classification as a sex offender.
